It is the quiet before the storm. The turkey is prepped, the pies are made, the table isn’t even close to being set, but I still have time to enjoy my tea. I am blessed.
I don’t limited the counting of blessings to a single day. I know how fortunate I am. Yet today marks a day when I take inventory. Some people do this on the cusp of a new year. I do it while cooking.
I started to write out the reasons why I’m grateful, but then I realized it doesn’t matter what is on my list. Today is a day of personal reflection. Everyone’s list is different.
So now I’m going to go set the table, brew another cup of tea, and prepare a meal. And smile. And laugh. And add to my list.
May your list be long. Happy Thanksgiving.
