Can you feel the excitement? November is winding down and Thanksgiving will be here next Thursday. Are you ready yet?
We all look forward to the day off and the holiday meal. Some even look forward to sitting in front of the tv for football.
I well remember those days of counting the days until that wonderful long weekend of no school, getting up late, and not having anything to do. Of course there was always the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade until noon, and then in our house the tv was turned off since we were not football fans. There was always lots of family and lots of lively conversation to accompany the wonderful scent of turkey and pumpkin pie in the oven.
This year it will be just myself and Michael for dinner. There will be no tv at all, but we have a lot to be thankful for. We have each other and our health. We may be literally thousands of miles from family, but we do know that they are there those thousands of miles away also enjoying their meal and that lively conversation among family.
I can’t think that one other thing to be grateful for is the peace and quiet!
