Today is a day of gratitude and while Thanksgiving is not something we celebrate here (though we do have a version of black friday/monday), I personally feel the spirit of gratitude in this day (which is why I found myself playing my favorite Christmas tunes and singing along
in the showerTMI LOL). In spite of the personal major upheaval, there truly is much to be grateful for.
No, there was no turkey or gathering of family and friends today. The celebration most similar to Thanksgiving locally being Christmas, that is when the gathering will most likely happen. It being a workday and the start of a long weekend, people are more likely to get a chance to meet up and touch base over the next few days.
I won’t post my list of thank you’s (some are too personal and I don’t want anyone to wonder why they aren’t on the
visible list). From family to friends to strangers who just help make my day better, I have many people to whom I would love to send a bottle of their favorite drink and some treat for you to nibble to show my appreciation. It’ll have to be virtual for now (for most) but please know that I am sooooooo grateful to have been blessed to have you guys in my life and I can only keep saying thank you for all you do (and putting up with me and my moods, LOL)!
So raising my glass (tumbler of coffee) to you who:
- love me and my kids (human and furry) and have helped get my life on track.
- give without hesitaion, expecting nothing in return
- forgive the mistakes, mizdeeds, mischief, errors and yep, sins that have led to my colorful life
- offer a shoulder to lean on when the dark moments come.
May your day be filled with happiness and joy and blessings overflowing!
