Now that we are back home it's time to start thinking about the Thanksgiving holiday. One of my very favorite times of the year, when most of my family can get together and enjoy each other's company over a delicious meal of favorites that we reserve just for this occasion.
It's a time to reflect and be reminded of all the things we are thankful for, and we all have things to be thankful for.
Everyday that I get to spend with my kids and grand kids I am reminded of that and thankful everyday that everyone is healthy.
I am so very lucky that my husbands job affords me to be a stay-at-home grandma, I am their day care provider, along with the other set of grandparents. Between three sets of grandparents our grandchildren have never had to go to an outside day care, something I am also grateful for.
I am also grateful that my husband and I get to make an early dream to come true, the chance to travel and see as much of this world as we can afford to see before we get to old to do so. After suffering such a loss this year, losing two aunts, my step-father, and my father-in-law, has reminded us how fragile life can be and to make the most of every single day that we are blessed on this earth.
I am blessed to have wonderful friends, they are like family, and even though we moved away from them and are miles apart we have kept in touch for twenty years.
I am also grateful for all of the expected things, a roof over our head, food on the table, and our health. I am blessed beyond measure, and I will never take it for granted.......ever.
We are having our Thanksgiving today, my turkey is cooking as we speak. My hubby and I will be leaving very early on Friday morning to travel, but that's another post.
I hope you all have a blessed Thanksgiving, enjoy time with the ones you love and remember all the things you have to be grateful for.
