Fortunately, even though I was not with my family I had a place to go. My bestie from the westie always opens her home and graciously shares her family with me, which I could not be more grateful for. They welcomed me with open arms and shared stories, food and their company. I could not ask for more.
Since my phone is maxed out for some reason, it has been acting weird and won't let me take pictures. So I have been more intentional in taking photos with my camera camera instead of instagram posts or snap shots with my phone. Here are just a few photos that I took at my Thanksgiving with my surrogate family.
|We call her the Queen of the Peanuts, and that's her doting gma in the background.|
|Gpa Vazquez, who was a professional trumpet player for 50+ years.|
|Momma Vazquez and Gma Vazquez, two funny and beautiful ladies.|
|This photo sums up how we all felt after stuffing ourselves.|
I am so grateful for so many things... thankful that I have a family to miss, grateful for a surrogate family to borrow, and the day to day blessings and people that make up my life. I truly am blessed and thank G-d for all of His provisions and even the things that He purposefully withholds for my good.
I hope your holidays are wonderful and safe.
