Thanksgiving is two days away. How does the holiday season creep up on us so quickly?
But I'm ready for it. The turkey is in the fridge. I went shopping and bought all the fixin's: potatos, gravy, peas, rolls.... and I have some of my very own summer squash in the freezer from my garden. Cranberry sauce, pickles... Mom will bake the pies. We are ready. Bring it on!
But I realized this morning that I may not be as ready as I thought. Because until this morning, I haven't stopped to really think about what I am thankful for, and after all, isn't that what it is all about?
I am thankful that Daryl and I have jobs in this crazy economy.
I am thankful that my children are happy and are building their own lives and families.
I am thankful that my mother continues to have good health in her later years.
I am thankful we have a home that is comfortable and warm in the winter.
I am thankful that my husband and I are friends as well as lovers.
I am thankful that I am able to have a hobby that I can create fun and wonderful things.
I am thankful that we have friendly neighbors.
