What I am Thankful For

I had planned to blog daily this month, sharing with you what I am most thankful for. As you can see, I was an epic failure in that regard, seeing as though I have only posted a couple threads and here we are, two days away from Thanksgiving. Yes! Two days! Oh my, how I love this time of year. More specifically, this month, this week and the day of the turkey. The day that I eat one slice of turkey because it is one tradition I cannot seem to break away from. Traditions. They are good to cherish and to hold on to. Some are worth tossing, while others have a stronghold. The one slice of turkey is one that I cannot break away from, despite my deep hatred for all things turkey. It’s a dry meat, there is nothing good about it. Yes, I have had it smoked, deep fried, BBQ’d, baked, roasted and more. I do not like turkey. End of discussion.

Good grief, I slid into another post, getting away from the topic at hand. Let’s start over.

I am thankful for sunrises and sunsets; for mountains and trees. I am thankful to see the beauty in every day, and I’m thankful to have an optimistic outlook. I am thankful.

This year our plan was to have a small gathering of 7, reconnecting with the parents and catching up with the nieces. We have since decided to stay home and bake cornish game hens instead. It will be a very quiet day of relaxing and maybe a movie, or three. It’s been awhile since we’ve watched a movie and I figure it’s time that we make Netflix work for their money. lol. Truthfully, I am looking forward to our day at home, with no plans, no schedules, and no people. Plans change, but that does not mean that Thanksgiving won’t be just as wonderful as it always has been for me. It’s a day to reflect and be thankful. I’m thankful. It is my favorite day of the year!

That does mean that I will be breaking my tradition of eating one slice of turkey for Thanksgiving. Who knows, maybe this is the beginning of no more turkey for me. Would that be a bad thing? I don’t know. I’ll let you know on Thursday. lol.

I know this is only a US holiday, so those that are elsewhere in the world, I hope that you have a wonderfully beautiful week. For those of you that are celebrating my favorite day, please enjoy it for what it is and no matter how you spend it, be happy and find peace with where this year has gone. It will soon be over.
