What an awesome time of year you are in. We have the awesome crisp air to breath in boots to wear and scarves to adorn our necks. I am a big fan. I would also like to mention the amazing additive of pumpkin to any and every dish. I should also give a big shout out to all the spices that actually give pumpkin the spice it needs to be so amazingly flavorful! We cannot forget about sweet potato pie and sweet potato casserole. Yum! The food is an also an amazing part of Thanksgiving. I think we would all agree on that as well.
My favorite part of Thanksgiving is always family and friends. This is by far the best part for me. With out family and friends none of the other attributes that come with Thanksgiving would bring me so much joy.
That is why I write today. This Thanksgiving I was so thankful for my family and friends......though most of them were not in my presence they were in my thoughts more than ever. I love thanksgiving with my family. As crazy as we can be it just feels good to be all together. Yes, there may be loud voices and the smell of cigarettes which by the way I HATE. It may be hectic and crazy with over drinking family members and kids running around and sometimes arguing. None of us are perfect and we are all very different but together we are family and it is beautiful. So, I'm not going to say I missed the smokey smell that lingers on my clothes and hair for days and all the drama that can come with the reuniting of family but I will say that I would have rather had it than not. ;) Thank you Lord for family and not just any family but the beautiful and colorful family you gave me!!!
I love you and I miss you. I love that we are so close and make a big deal out of a special day. I have a lot to be thankful for but your are by far first on my list!
Thankful we will be all together next year!
