Give Thanks: Even in the hard years, wonderful things happen. What has filled your heart? What will fill your stomach at the Thanksgiving table?
I think that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I don’t think I really knew that until midway through college, but it is. I am pretty sure I also read somewhere about how the Thanksgiving story wasn’t totally true at all (a quick Google search just confirmed) so I really just love that there is no actual point besides family and eating a lot of food.
I feel like every year, I read at least article deriding traditional Thanksgiving foods as being “tired” and it breaks my heart! Stuffing, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, relish trays, all of it. Cozy, comforting food to its very core. Honestly, I am somewhat shocked we do not enjoy this feast more than one time in the course of the year. I am already confident that Critter will be delighted by it too.
And lots of hand turkey art (no, seriously…LOOK). The Truest American Art Form. That Critter can now participate absolutely delights me.
What am I so glad for this year? Our Boy Baby. My husband. Our parents. Our siblings. Our friends. Our health.
We have plenty. Enough. An abundance.
