Who is your Hero?
 
...I am fortunate to have many heroes in my life! My mother is an incredible hero. She has dedicated her life as a caregiver to others. She always makes time to think of others needs and wishes. Even at 79 years young, she still does her gardening, mends fences and cooks for large gatherings!
...When I asked my son he shyly whispered, "Somebody."  Then I said, "Who is somebody?"  It is a proud day when your son looks into your eyes and shares, "You." (an exceptional thankful mother of an Addison 'gator)
 
For what are you thankful?
 
...Santa, thanks for the new Basketball goals at school!
