It’s Thanksgiving Day in the USA! My favourite holiday because Thanksgiving just involves food, lots of it. No presents, no decorating trees, no Secret Santas etc. Just the simple joy of overeating.
We celebrate Thanksgiving the traditional way with turkey and all the fixings. I also make my children (and guests) think about what they are particularly thankful for this year. My son had the best answer in my opinion – he is thankful for hugs and kisses – how sweet! We’ve got plenty of hugs and kisses to go around!
As for me, I am thankful for
- my family, of course. I love being a mother and am grateful that I got to be one. The road was long and difficult but we feel blessed with our two children. We had a new baby niece born into our family who is a cutie. Our dog is now 11 and seems to be doing well. He’s gotten crotchety but otherwise remains the same.
- my friends who are as ever good for a laugh or a cry, as needed. I’ve started a new venture with one of my friends which involves travel and has us really excited. Details to be unveiled soon I promise!
- my blog (yes!). I’ve met some very cool people through it, and learned loads. I get to write about all the things that interest me – home, garden, food, travel, and shopping. BTW, Mr. N is very happy we did not move house this year — he is thankful that my blog occupies my free time.
What are you thankful for?
