This morning I made baklava and mini pecan pies. My sister made honey glazed corn bread with a recipe borrowed from a friend. My mom made three pumpkin pies, pecan pie, cranberry scones, and a turkey (just for leftovers).
In the other room my husband and father are discussing business and books and music, and life.
Pretty soon we’ll all make an apple pie that we could probably all make in our sleep.
In a few hours we will go to my great Aunt J’s house and I’ll see my cousins, aunts, grandparents and celebrate all of the things we are thankful for. But, truly we are really most thankful for each other.
This year has been a year of triumph and successes, trying and tears, new discoveries, beginnings and the continuation of the journey we call life. That life is made more tolerable, more sweet, more enjoyable and that much more valuable when surrounded by people you love, and the people who love you.
I wish you the most peaceful of Thanksgivings, and hope you’ll have a moment to consider and celebrate all of the ways you are thankful.
Thank you for reading and allowing me to share my journey with you.
