November

Ah, November. My favorite month of the year. The weather turns
cooler, the leaves start to fall and we get to celebrate what is
probably my favorite holiday of the year.

But more than that, November has always been special to me because
it’s birthday season for my family. My Dad, Grandpa, one of my
brothers and I all share this month. And, after I got married I added
three more birthdays to list: my father-in-law, brother-in-law and
sister-in-law. It’s a full month, but it’s a month of celebrating life
and everything we have to be thankful for.

This year I’m a little sad because it’s the first November since my
Grandpa passed. In fact, today is his birthday. I miss him. I wish he
were here to make jokes and enjoy the family gatherings.

But, even though I’m saddened by the loss of my Grandpa, I’m still
excited for this month. I’m excited about family. I’m excited about
giving thanks. And, I’m excited to relax and enjoy life.
