On this eve before Thanksgiving, I'm filled with reflection. Memories of holidays gone by and the people who have been a part of my life. Sometimes, in the craziness of life, I forget how blessed I have been.
Tomorrow will be a very quiet day at my home, with family scattered across the country, some traveling, some working. I've already decided to enjoy the day with my husband and youngest son, who will both be here, our oldest has to work the holiday. It's going to be a laid back, stress free, lounge around in your jammies kind of day. For the meal, I'm just cooking turkey breast, sweet potatoes, stuffing (the boxed cornbread style), and a vegetable. My husband is making pumpkin pie tonight, which is his specialty. No fancy salads, side dishes, or appetizers needed, just good, humble food.
One of my favorite things to do on Thanksgiving is to watch the Macy's Parade and The National Dog Show. Yes, really! After that, perhaps a holiday movie or a rousing game of Dominoes. My husband is thinking about stringing the Christmas lights on the house, or at least check for needed replacements. It will be just a quiet day here in small town USA. Wishing you all a lovely Thanksgiving! May it be exactly what you're hoping for!
