In less than 4 days, I'll be prepping a 22 lb. bird, injecting, stuffing, basting and baking her slowly in my oven, while whipping up a kitchen full of side-dishes and tasty treats for dessert! And, the last week it's been like 60 degrees here in Texas. That rarely happens, but I'm glad it has become cooler than usual, so I can actually enjoy this holiday season, minus sweating. Today I will attempt to assist Jonathan in hanging Christmas lights on the outside of the house. It will be interesting to see how much *help* I really am. Last year, while I was inside decorating, he and his brother, Justin, put up lights outside, and played a joke on me trying to make me think that Jonathan had fallen off the roof. I may just have to get him back this year. This cool weather is making me feel a little sneaky. ;)
This Thanksgiving, I really do have so much to be thankful for. I've been incredibly blessed to have been surrounded by such wonderful support, because I definitely have needed it. This year, at times, has been trying, and, at times, incredibly tough, but it's also been a year filled with love, happiness, and victory, and for all of that, I am so thankful. I've realized so much this year about the strength and fight I have inside of me, and to have a whole World of support behind me on my happy and not-so-happy days, has meant more to me than I could ever relay in a blog.
In two short words, I'm Thankful.
