So, celebrating a traditional Thanksgiving has become one of our few traditions. We celebrate with family and friends and we remember the ones who are no longer with us. We watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. We eat turkey and stuffing, sweet potato casserole, cranberry relish, green beans, corn on the cob, and dinner rolls. We watch football, take naps on the couch, and round out the afternoon with razzleberry pie and coffee. We reflect on the highs and lows of the past year and look forward to the possibilities of the next one.
Some of the things I'm thankful for this year:
*Good health for me and the family. Something that wasn't always so over the course of the year.
*A day job that pays the bills and affords me time to devote to writing.
*Family and friends who cheer me on when I haven't the strength or faith to keep going.
*Two fur-babies who are always happy to see me
*A WIP that I've finally managed to get to "The End"
I could list more, but the turkey needs to be dressed and the fixins' need fixing. So, whether your celebration is traditional or non-traditional, Happy Thanksgiving, from our house to yours.
