Giving Thanks

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day and we will be spending it together. Just the six of us. My whole world together for a quiet, calm day of family, food, and fun. We are fortunate to have my parents here on Christmas, so I have to share them with my sisters on Thanksgiving! Only fair I guess! Steve is one of seven, so his mother takes turns as well. So we will spend the day in our jammies, watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade start to finish. We will eat turkey and mashed potatoes and stuffing and pumpkin pie. And like so many others, we will give thanks for the oh so many blessings God has given us.

I am thankful for so many things...way too many to list here. (After all, I am sure you have much to do to prepare for tomorrow!)  I am thankful for my wonderful husband, and my four sweet children. For my entire loving family. The cozy home I live in. The clean water I get just for turning a tap. The soft bed I sleep in. The food in my cupboards. The health I take for granted.

I am thankful for my dear sweet best friend Marian who I met the very first moment of college and have shared joys and sorrows with every day since, even though she lives far away. I am thankful for my new blogger friends who have been so very kind and welcomed me into this wonderful world of blogging with friendship and open arms. And so I wish you all a safe, happy, cozy day of family and food and love and thanks. Relax and enjoy and settle in. The best time of the year is just ahead!
