Happy Thanksgiving!

November 26th, 2010 at 05:03 am

Today was the day! A day to reflect and be thankful. A day to eat more than I should. A day to relax.

There are so many things that I have been blessed with and I often take for granted. My friend had a major heart attack Tuesday night. He had bypass surgery this morning and his family spent the holiday loving him yet concerned. How many holidays have I spent at home in the comfort of my own place not being ill?

I had more than enough to eat. I can't remember a holiday that I went hungry.

It's cold out today. We had a wintry mix of precipitation. Fortunately I have power and heat so I didn't get cold.

I have running water and could clean things and drink fresh water and run the dishwasher.

I spent part of the evening changing my summer wardrobe to my winter wardrobe. I have more than enough clothes.

I am married to a remarkable man who loves me.

After seeing the advertisements in the paper and the ongoing commercials, I am thankful that I do not have to get up early and hit the Black Friday sales. There is nothing that I need to get that means I have to face crowds and an early ringing alarm.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

    I am slso thankful for all the things you mentioned. We also had a wintry mix of precipitation, but overall not too bad. I made my traditional Puerto Rican meal on Wednesday and on yesterday we headed to my mother in law for more turkey and tons of dessert. I'm glad you had an awesome day!

    I never go shopping on black Friday! We had an awesome meal with friends yesterday. Happy Holidays!

    I agree on all counts! What wonderful things to be thankful for. I am with Ima, I never shop on Black Friday. I would rather get things throughout the year, because it leads to less stress and more insurance of a balanced budget during the holidays. I hope yours are wonderful!
