My husband and I spent a very quiet day together celebrating Thanksgiving. We woke up late, went to the grocery store and came home to make a tasty turkey dinner. Typically we eat Thanksgiving dinner with my in-laws, but it was nice to share this special day alone. We cooked all afternoon together and ate on china in our dining room. Right now I’m sitting in front of a very warm fire with the lights off and the candles on the mantle blazing. I’m so thankful to share my life with my husband.
I’m thankful for so many things. I’m thankful for my 80+ year old grandmother who is getting kinder and funnier every year, for my parents who love me unconditionally, for all the wonderful family members and friends in our lives. I’m thankful for all of the blessings and joys we’ve experienced throughout the year and even the not so wonderful events that have helped me learn and grow.
This list could go on and on, but these were the first thoughts that came to mind. I hope you all have many things to be thankful for this holiday season. Happy Thanksgiving!
