To all that will be celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow:
Have a good one!
To all others:
I really thought about reposting my lovely Thanksgiving post from last year.
Ultimately, I decided against it.
It is in the past and will remain so....
unless you really want to read how uninvited people came to dinner. If you do, go ahead and click here.
It's a different kind of year for me.
I have never been one to really enjoy the holidays.
Growing up holidays were more of an obligation to go somewhere and not necessarily where I wanted to go.
Since, we have moved here, we started our own day.
We stayed home.
It was small.
It was peaceful.
It was awesome!
This year is different.
We are going to my parent's home for the first time in ...
... over a decade?
I didn't realize it has been so long.
My parents are tickled to death.
All of their children under the same roof on a holiday.
That seldom happens.
I don't pick one day out of the year to be thankful.
I am grateful for things on a regular basis.
If I only waited til the 4th Thursday of every year, I'd really be a pain to live with.
But, Thanksgiving is not just about me and my thankfulness.
It is about my daughter being thankful she gets to see her cousins, aunts, and grandparents.
It is about my parents being thankful for having their whole family together.
So what if my nephew's ADHD drives everyone just a little bit insane.
So what If my mom is bound to blow a gasket at some time during the day.
I am determined that it is going to be a good day.
Now, I have to go make my deviled eggs.
