This year has been difficult in so many ways. We won’t be sharing a meal with our families or spending time with friends. But there is still so much to be thankful for.
On top of my list of things to be thankful for is my little family. I feel so lucky to be Cannon and Emerald’s mom. And while it’s not for the best reason I have been enjoying my extra time with them. And with Cory working at home we are getting more quality time with him.
We plan to have the full Thanksgiving meal at home and enjoying all the things we do have to be grateful for.
I feel like there is so much to be hopeful for in the coming future. It feels like brighter days are coming.
Our plan is to spend the day cooking together, running a turkey trot around our neighborhood (probably with a playground break) and a little time visiting with my parents outside. We are so lucky to live only two mies from them and still get to see them in safe ways. I really feel for families who haven’t been able to see each other in almost a year or more.
Then we will spend our evening eating traditional Thanksgiving food and really counting our blessings.
Lastly I am so so thankful for our health care workers. Risking their lives to save ours. Leaving their families to serve when they are needed.
My hope is that everyone has the best day they can, that you get some yummy food and that you have things to focus on and be thankful for.
