Today I am, of course, thankful for the bounty with which we have been blessed. Our table was full; full of loved ones, food, memories, and thoughts of the future.
I was hesitant to host this year; Miss Thang wasn’t quite crawling when we hosted last year and I wasn’t sure I had it in me to chase her, an oft unruly Mayor, and do Thanksgiving. But it’s easier for Fella’s aged grandparents to be on familiar turf, so I agreed to it. I’m thankful that we were able to pull off yet another Thanksgiving dinner in my home.
Although the kids had their moments, (I actually uttered the words “I will cancel Thanksgiving” to the Mayor this morning…a few times…this has really been an actions-have-consequences-lesson-learning week) I was basically able to keep with my timeline and we got through dinner in time to catch the start of the Niners’ game, as depressing as it was (especially after my Bears lost in the morning).
And now that the leftovers are packed away and the dishwasher is humming, I am thankful to already be thinking about doing it again for breakfast on Christmas morning!
Today is technically the last of my Thankful Thursdays, although it may pop up throughout the year!
