There have been years--mostly when my girls were even younger than they are now--that Thanksgiving has come and gone and I wonder, Thanksgiving? We did that? And I stumble into the next day just as sleep deprived as I was the next day, grateful although very tired.
This year I am thankful I am not sleep deprived.
I'm thankful for the pies my mom baked in her oven, the turkey that is cooking in our oven, the bread baking in my bread maker, and the cranberry sauce that I made this morning containing 3 cups of sugar. Gratefulness indeed.
Already today the girls watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, Jason went for a 4-mile run in the rain, and I got to sleep in. Already today I have thought of my grandmas and how much I miss them, and how grateful I am to have had them in my life for so long.
I hope your day is filled with gratitude.
Already today? Mine is filled and ready for more.
