We find ourselves for the first time in 28 years, spending Thanksgiving with just the two of us...and it isn't weird! I still found myself getting up at the crack of dawn like a kid on Christmas morning. I had much to prepare before I get to the applique I have set aside to work on during the Macy's parade. (I love the Macy's parade!! Don't you?! Oh! And the National Dog Show that follows!) Sooo...the turkey is prepped. The pies are made. The champagne is chilling and our table is set...for two! Trading in the long family table for a romantic setting in front of the fireplace is kinda fun.
Quite honestly, I think the fact we just spent last weekend celebrating with our kids makes today easier and a bit more special for hubby and I. We get to enjoy all that we have to be thankful for, quietly together. As I'm sure it has for many of you as well, the gifts of Life and Learning, with it's sneaky, unexpected twists and turns along the way, creates an overwhelming sense of gratitude to have ended up in the good places we are. For me, to travel this life adventure together in marriage, with my very best friend, is what I feel most blessed for.
Welllll....and for the love of this little guy too! I don't think I would have made it through that empty nest transition some seven years ago, without him (or quilting).
|Today he gets his very own meat bone to enjoy the entire day!|
Thank you for stopping by today. It is truly my wish for you
that your day is overflowing with love and gratitude as well.
Happy, Happy Thanksgiving friends!!
