30 Days Of Thanksgiving

1. I am thankful that I finally realize Thanksgiving Day is more than turkey, gravy, dressing, sweet potatoes, Campbell's Green Bean Casserole, etc. Thanksgiving is about being thankful for those closest to us and for the many blessings we have received (and we've been receiving a lot lately).

Note: This is where I should be inserting the Norman Rockwell picture of our happy family. Unfortunately, I was lost in the moment and never even thought to take a picture. :)
2. I am thankful that the steaks we threw on the grill turned out perfectly!
3. I am thankful that Keith and I were able to spend time with Dad this morning at the nursing home and that he was content and happy with the Mc Donald's milk shake we brought him. He didn't realize it was Thanksgiving Day, but he sure knew he was enjoying that milk shake!
4. I am thankful for the cool, crisp day. It really seemed like fall to this New Jersey girl.
5. I am thankful that we'll be sleeping late tomorrow morning (or as late as the cats allow) and won't be getting to any stores at 4:00 AM. Even if they were giving it away for free I wouldn't be there!
I hope your Thanksgiving was as blessed as ours!!!

  1. You state that perfectly, Betty, I wouldn't be at the stores today no matter what they were offering, unless it could be State Street back in the 50s ha. We had lovely weather, too, yesterday, it was fabulous. Glad you had a good, good day.
