We had a great day. Laid-back and relaxing. It was the first time in a loooong time that we have spent Thanksgiving with just us - no extended family, no cousins or grandparents. Just the eight of us. Which when you put it like that, sounds not so alone. *grin* Yes, I missed the traditions, the camaraderie, the fun that we have when we all get together. But there were some benefits, too. My house wasn't (ahem) perfectly clean, and I spent a good bit of the day in my jammies. It was a good day.
I have so much to be thankful for, this year. My husband, and my children. Friends and family. How our needs have been met, and how we've been blessed beyond our wildest dreams. Hannah's birth. Nathan's teeth. And just today, I reconnected with two of my very best friends in the entire world. God is good...
This next year, I am going to be more intentional about acknowledging my blessings, and writing about everything for which I ought to be thankful. I have been truly blessed beyond measure, and I need more than just one day a year to celebrate that.
So, to all my friends, even those of you to the North and those across the Pond, Happy Thanksgiving. I am thankful for you, more than you know.
