Well Thanksgiving may have been a bit low-key compared to year’s past where we had the entire extended family over. We had my sister-in-law over, the kid’s grandmother and Guy. Seemed everyone else had other places to be. I have a new nephew who was born about a month ago down in Cottonwood which kinda pulls the family in two different directions during the holidays. I also have some family that has moved away. Even though the turnout wasn’t as great in numbers this year, the meal was exceptional and I am incredibly thankful for that and some time with loved ones.
I am also thankful that we live a life wanting for nothing and that we are able to even give back to others in need during the holidays. It’s a blessing not to have to worry about where your next meal is coming from. And if you have that blessing, you should bless others as well.
I did not wake up Friday morning to rush out the door and stand in line anywhere. We did however, peek at some Black Friday deals on Amazon and I got my husband a few gifts, but I spent Friday cleaning up after our Thanksgiving meal and enjoyed watching Christmas movies with my family.
I did have to take Sammy (our older cat) to the vet on Friday. It looks like he’s got some sort of upper respiratory infection, and the whole house is battling a little bit of the sniffles and sore throats, but we are doing it with grateful hearts.
We’ve got a fridge full of left over turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and my mother in law’s wonderful gravy to last all week and I don’t have to worry about preparing meals for awhile…just heat it up, loosen those belts and take more naps. 🙂 Ha ha!
Anyway, we hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
