Counting our Blessings
Turkey? Up and ready to begin the day sometime after o-dark-thirty.
Cranberry sauce? Check.
Potatoes? To be mashed.
Gravy? Yet to be made.
Biscuits? Last minute touches.
Pie? Oh, my!
And we'll be all ready to enjoy the feast, re-enacting our traditional, annual meal.
More than that checklist, though, is the mental list of recalling all our blessings throughout the past year and beyond. Sometimes, that takes time to recall, but when those special moments come to mind, it's a good remembrance. There are times when I am overwhelmed by the consideration of what could have been, but turned out so much better...
No matter where your memories of the past take you, here's a wish for an enjoyable day spent with those who mean the most to you: happy Thanksgiving!
