Today is Thanksgiving. I am looking out the window at the lake and a volcano and I am pensive and aware of how far we are from our friends and family. It is not only my favorite holiday, but my moms. The holiday of food. What’s not to love?!
There is much to be said for ‘Thankfulness’ this time of the year. We are truly blessed to be able to have such a huge family. We miss each and everyone one of them and are happy to know that we have shared plates at their Thanksgiving tables over the years, enough to remember and know what they will have today. We certainly have no shortage of places to go, and we would be sad that we weren’t in 5 places at the same time anyway, but we are thinking of each of them.
- Ohio (Kurt’s family)
- Pennsylvania (my Dad’s family)
- Vermont (My Mom’s family)
- California (My Aunt Glo’s family and My Grammy)
- Florida (My Aunt Beth’s family – who is normally in California)
While it is exceptionally beautiful here, there is nothing that makes up for the changing seasons and the ability to hug those close to us. We send our love, hugs, happiness and kisses to the wonderful gift of family we have been given. We have a lot to be grateful for this year, and traditionally we do cut out leaves and write what we are thankful for on them.
Thanks to all those that touch our lives everyday.
