Yesterday another blogger whose blog I read regularly posted an entry entitled Thanks--for what? My initial reaction was: My thoughts exactly. Of course I am thankful for my family and friends and all that, but still... This has not been the best year of my life, and I've really struggled with feeling the spirit of the holiday.
That was yesterday.
Fortunately, today is better.
It's cold outside but my house is warm and smells like roasting turkey and pumpkin pie. The kids are watching the Mythbusters marathon in the living room, my husband is hanging Christmas lights and there are two good dogs are curled up at my feet. There's even a new resin on my desk. All these things remind me that life is good, and I am in fact thankful.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
