Thanksgiving Day is my favorite holiday. Period. Many events, large and small across the years have conspired to try and sour this day for me, but no luck. I still love Thanksgiving Day.
I give thanks for being with family and friends who are like family.
I give thanks for a circle of people where we share our gratitude for what is in our lives that makes us happy – trees, beauty, family, close friends, good healthy food prepared and shared by all.
I give thanks for singing together – from the Thanksgiving song we do before our meal (where everyone groans as I pass out the words but then does their best to sing along) – to the Beatles, etc. extravaganza long after dinner is over with guitar and many voices.
I give thanks for taking the time to slow down and hear about each other over a delicious meal.
I give thanks for my husband, my mother and my son who all love and support this effort fully! (Alieza will be here for Christmas – another gratitude!)
I give thanks for the colder weather and a fire in the fireplace.
Life has been very full this year – and getting fuller as we move into the rest of the Holiday season. So I am taking time right now to say thank you to all of you who read my blog posts – I hope you can take the time to count your blessings as well – and enjoy!
