Happy Thanksgiving

Last Thanksgiving I was here:

It was so wonderful to wake up to the sound of waves crashing, an agenda of absolutely nothing other than making sure my tan was even, eating pineapple galore and reading a good book. It truly was a slice of heaven.

But I missed having the traditional family Thanksgiving we have every year where I pack up my overnight bag and head to my parents place. My brothers are up early for the turkey bowl, my mom, sister-in-law's and I are in the kitchen baking away and the aroma's of turkey, stuffing, pies, rolls, & potatoes fill the air. After enjoying a delicious meal, we all go put on our sweats & head to the family room to watch movies.

So I am eager as can be for tomorrow's traditions!

Thanksgiving always gets me thinking of how thankful I am for everything I have. The list truly is so long it could go on forever, which that in itself is something to be thankful for. Lately my thoughts of gratitude are for the same things they are every year, but with deeper appreciation for those things such as the gospel, family, friends, having a job, and having good health.

So here's to another year of gratitude--Happy Thanksgiving!
