It seems obligatory, this post on Thanksgiving Day about thankfulness, but it's anything but trite. In fact, I'm so thankful for so many things -- for these three tangle-haired kids who woke up a half hour before I dragged my way out of bed this morning, for my husband who slept beside me last night, for my other family members -- both near and far -- who are constant in my life. For my friends, for my freedoms, for the food on my table, for my health, for my comforts.
I'm thankful for it all. And now I'm going to sign off, spend the day with my family, and eat regrettable amounts of turkey, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, and pumpkin pie. And apple pie. And cherry pie.
What can I say? I got carried away with baking last night.
Wishing you a wonderful day with your loved ones!
