Giving Thanks...


Thanksgiving Day is here and I couldn't be happier!

Why?

Because Will is home.

The five of us get to be together today, and for that I am so very grateful. Being married to an airline pilot, I'm lucky to have him home for any of the holidays, but for the big one's, like Thanksgiving and Christmas, I am especially grateful when we get to share them with him.

Our day will start with our traditional Thanksgiving breakfast, the Macy's Day parade, lots of cooking and baking, then heading over to my parents house to spend the day with them. We'll finish off the evening with Will's family, then come back home for some fun and games.

And to top off the excitement and anticipation...it snowed while we were sleeping. So we have a fresh coat of white covering the landscape. It couldn't be more beautiful outside of our windows.


Whatever your day may hold, I hope that you enjoy yourself. And remember...

"We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have."

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

I know that feeling of how having him home ...once mine got stuck in Alaska over Christmas fogged in for 3 days, but the crew all enjoyed a special time and closeness.
