Happy Thanksgiving to all who are celebrating today. There is still so much to be thankful for even with a year like we have had. 2020, frankly you can't be over with soon enough! Still today is a day to spread gratitude for all that we have, for all the love, family and friendship, a roof over my head, clean clothes and food to eat. My children are healthy, I am lucky to be able to work, move, think and speak. I am lucky to be able to clean my house top to bottom today and get ready to decorate for Christmas tomorrow. I have a beautiful little boy, who is a pistol but fills my heart up everyday. He is a work in progress, but aren't we all? I am blessed my older sons have been moving on into adulthood, just as they should be. I am blessed for beautiful friendships, and that includes all of you!
For those of you who have suffered so much loss this year my thoughts and prayers are with you. I am keeping you close to my heart.
If you would like to learn the true origin of Thanksgiving please read this wonderful piece by Heather Cox Richardson, which hopefully you can find here. I read her email every morning. She is a historian teaching out of Boston College and she is just amazing in her knowledge and views.
Stay safe and enjoy your day!
