Thanks Giving Day

     So here I am.  My tummy satisfied.  The day is over.  All the children are in bed.  The in-laws and the out-laws are all sound asleep.  I guess I can't help but look back on the day.  

     We've followed most all of our traditions.  I mean, we played our games of Aggravation till we heard each other wonder why we do this to ourselves.  (hahaha) We ate to the point where we probably nearly hurt ourselves.  Most everyone fell asleep at some point during the day after we ate.  The only thing we didn't do was break the wishbone.... (I think we've got more turkey to deal with before we can find that bone.....)   ... all in all, I was a wonderful day and I'm at peace... 

     My wonderful husband let me sleep in.  It was my mother-in-law who was up before the sun getting the turkey in the oven.  When I finally arose all I could think about was how my husband should never have taken me to my High School Reunion and left me there with our oldest son.  He should have been there with me especially since I was given the "most beautiful" award.  It didn't take but one really good look in the mirror to let me know I'd been dreaming. (lol)   But he STILL should have stayed with me.  (ok, ok, I KNOW I was only dreaming but still.... : )  Anyway, he made up for "leaving" me, in my dream, by actually making sure I had coffee to drink once I was awake.  (now that's a good man!)

     The kids and I watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade till Santa showed up and that was the end of that.  While we basically lolli-gagged the day away my husband and in-laws "slaved" in the kitchen preparing one totally awesome meal.  Lets see, we had :

  • Turkey
  • Gravy
  • "Regular" Stuffing
  • Oyster Stuffing
  • Cranberry Sauce
  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Fresh cooked green beans
  • Dinner rolls
  • Apple pie
  • Sweet potatoe pie
  • Peach pie
  • Ice cream
  • and some kind of sweet potatoe cassarole of some sort with pecans all over the top.
     It was just a "normal" day at the dinner table till my eldest daughter took her hand-made turkey and began to  pass it around.  The holder of the turkey began to tell what they were thankful for.  

This simple act of thanks giving truly made today THANKSGIVING DAY. 

I pray that we each find a way to thank God every day, then we can have THANKSGIVING DAY...... everyday !
