It's Thankful Thursday - something I usually do in my Instagram stories - and I'm here to say Amazon is amazing, but maybe not for the obvious reasons. I will prime All. Day. Long. Son.

Last Saturday, we - Jason's 4 kids, his former stepson from a prior marriage, my son, and I - planted Jason's ashes into a tree.
