Happy Thanksgiving

I just have to say that it drives me crazy that Christmas decorations go up before Thanksgiving. I know, I know, I've been in retail, and I know that 85% of a retail business' income is made from Christmas sales, so I understand it. But, I don't like it. I like (try) to be there, in the moment, and enjoy each season and each holiday! 

I love to experience Advent before Christmas, and while I'm talking about the church calendar, I love to experience Lent before Easter. To experience the weeks before Christmas and Easter make the celebrations more special and meaningful to me.

But back to Thanksgiving! What a great time for family and friends to get together and enjoy each other, and, not to mention, enjoy great food. How fun is it to get out those wonderful recipes from Thanksgivings gone before. Everytime I pull out the "Green Bean Casserole" recipe that I wrote on a notepad in my sister's kitchen years ago, I just feel happy. It's great to remember great times!!!

So next Thursday, let's all count our blessings and be thankful for all that we have, love our family, enjoy great food, remember those we have shared those dishes with over the years and who are no longer with us, and just take a break from our hectic "connected" world.

Happy Thanksgiving ya'll!
