Thanksgiving

November 24, 2011

24 DAYS OF THANKS
#24 - I am thankful for my family. That we are blessed enough to have had a wonderful Thanksgiving feast today. That my Mom and Dad and I continue to carry on the traditions that we have held for the 31 years of my life (even some of the painful ones that we just smile through when we think of my brother). That Hubs and I have been able to start our own traditions and look forward to future Thanksgivings building more of those. That we have a dedicated time to take away from our "busy" lives and really dedicate time to our families. To think about all that we are thankful for. To think about those we have lost that we were thankful to have had in our lives for the time they were with us. I am a lucky woman for all of those things I have listed over the last 24 days...

Now begins the holiday hoopla... but I am going to let my turkey digest before I step up on my soap box. I am just happy to hear that there are a few people out there that (like me) dont think of Thanksgiving as "the day before black Friday" or "the gateway to the holidays."

I have to go dig out my grinch hat though...
