It's been a couple of years since I have written about Thanksgiving. All the other posts are under the Thanksgiving tag. I am really that tired right now that I am not going to put in the hyperlinks! I digress. I didn't have to host dinner, I just had to make a side dish and grandma's apple cake. How easy is that? Seriously, it was awesome...I feel a new tradition coming on. My mother hosted dinner, and it was fabulous. It's always fun to spend time with my siblings.
Today was a beautiful day. The sun was out, the sky was so blue! It's the end of November and the weather has been amazing. I had a nice run, called friends and relatives and enjoyed having a day off. I think this is the closest to doing nothing I have had on a holiday. I had an opportunity to reflect on all the things I am thankful for: My husband, sons, daughter-in-law, grandchildren, family and friends. I am gainfully and happily employed and have adequate food and shelter. We may not have the newest baubles and trinkets, but we have love. I am wealthy beyond measure not monetarily, but in the intangible ways that matter. My life is far from perfect but I honestly couldn't ask for better and for that, I am thankful!
