I'm taking the rest of the week off for Thanksgiving. I was planning on making the whole meal, but then some friends invited us over for Thanksgiving dinner and when the grandma of the family insisted to sweet husband that we were coming over to eat, plans changed and now we'll be eating with our friends. He knows enough not to turn down a grandma.
Of course over this holiday we like to remember some of the things we are thankful for, so don't forget to make that part of your day or weekend. Spend a little time contemplating the blessings in your life. No focusing on the things you want and don't have or whatever bad stuff is going on in your world. Just count your blessings, however small you may think they are. I know my family is amazingly blessed even though we don't have a huge house or nice cars or fancy furniture. We have each other and an income and good friends and family. May we all gain a greater appreciation for the blessings in our lives.
And now for the heads up on the Christmas fun. I'll be running the Preparedness Stocking Stuffer Swap again this year. We had a blast with it last year and hope all you who participated did also. The guidelines/rules/explanation will be forthcoming after the Thanksgiving holiday, so stay tuned and be ready to play along!
