It’s “Thanksgiving”. I guess the appropriate thing to say, would be ” Happy” and ” Thanksgiving”. But, I feel no happiness in my heart or my soul right now, so it’s a hard word to use- for me anyway. I am thankful though…I’m thankful every day for my family and my friends; for my pets; for the warmth of the sun on my back on a chilly day. I’m thankful for all the birds that visit my backyard ; and the sound of the rain on my roof that lulls me off to sleep on the hardest of nights. I’m thankful to have that roof on this old house that keeps me sheltered from the heat and the cold, and for a refrigerator that’s full of food…. I know that others aren’t so blessed 😦 . I wish I could do more for them.
I’m thankful for everything that others have done for me, and I’m thankful for their support, especially in these: my darkest days.
I’m thankful for my life, and for being so fortunate to have shared it for 31 and a half years, with a beautiful soul named Sam. My whole family was blessed to share in those years. I’m thankful to have been a mom to the 4 best children any parent could ask for.
I wish for you all, the Best Thanksgiving ever. May your bellies be full, and your homes be filled with the most amazing aromas that only Thanksgiving can offer. May your pumpkin pie crust be light and flaky, and may your wine glasses runneth over with the purest of grape gold.
Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving everyone.
