It has been a quiet day here in our home. It feels kind of strange not being with family and celebrating over mountains of food, but I am still thankful.
I am glad that I can still say Happy Thanksgiving because it is all about being thankful. Even though I can be thankful every day of my life, I am specifically thankful for:
- the hope I have in God who gives me strength to live each day
- my husband
- my mother
- my sister
- my father
- my in-laws
- my sis-in-laws
- my job
As you can see, I can be thankful for these things every day but I have chosen to really remember the wonderful things in my life.
I hope that you all are able to take a second and be thankful for the wonderful blessings in your life.
I leave you with a simple recipe that can be prepared tomorrow after all your leftovers.
