The day is over and it was a day of giving thanks for much! Even in 2020, "the best year ever," said no one, there is plenty to be grateful for. I was able to see both my daughters and their families via zoom, and well as my brother and his family. I was with friends this year due to extenuating circumstances, and if I had to be away from my family, I'm grateful I was able to be with friends and their kin folk.
The day was peaceful, subdued and different in a good way. Not a lot of fan fare. No combing the papers for Black Friday Sales, no christmas decorations being put up. Just a different, lovely day with good weather!
Today, I am grateful for:
Seeing Megan and her family even if only via zoom
Lindsay and her family even if only via zoom
Touching base with My brother Dennis and his family
My other brothers, Bruce, Nick and Shawn, and their families, even though we didn't connect today
Friends who are family
Sleepy time tea
A Vegan Thanksgiving that was so very delicious and enjoyable
Dressing / Stuffing
Trees that still have leaves on them in Nov
A gorgeous sunset
Waking up this morning
2 good legs (was with someone recovering from knee surgery today)
not having to dealing with cancer or degenerative disease in my body at this time in my life
Memories that make me smile
People with a good sense of humor
People with contagious laughs
Seeing and hearing my youngest grandson and a great niece and nephew giggle in the way only littles can
