One of the things I love best about Thanksgiving is being able to spend time with family without all the trappings and business of the other holidays. I enjoy being able to sit with my family around the table and just enjoy their company. I love to watch my children revelling in the acceptance, security, and love that only a family can bring. It warms my heart to see them enjoying that time almost as much as I do.
The day we got together with my family, Cameron was thrilled to be able to go out fishing with his "big cousin", Jason. Jason is an avid fisherman and Cameron is following in his footsteps. I had to smile when I got an email from Joanne with photos that Alyson (Jason's fiancee) took of their time together. In looking at the photos and watching Cameron as he looked at them, it reinforced my belief that extended family is so important to a child. In those few short hours bonds were made, as were many memories that will never be forgotten. Thanks, Jason, for taking the time to make a difference in the life on a little boy.
