Today is Thanksgiving and its a beautiful day. Hopefully we'll be taking a nice long walk this morning around the village to see the Christmas windows and enjoy the calm and quiet of the empty streets.
Thanksgiving has always been about family. But I've moved beyond the point where I think if I don't have my entire family around me it just won't be the same. I think now that I could be content with just the two of us if it were ever to happen. I envision us curled up in front of the fireplace just enjoying our warm house and the fact that we still have each other to fill our lives with love and contentment. I am a lucky lady.
Lucky enough to have family coming for dinner later this afternoon. A cancelled trip for my daughter means her crew will be here, and my brother and nephew will join us as well. A fuller table will mean a gathering of love and laughter and I welcome that. But I am also grateful that I no longer need a full table to be truly grateful for my blessings. Because blessings come in all sizes.
