Happy Thanksgiving

Just wanted to take a few minutes to wish you all a very happy turkey day! I hope everyone has an enjoyable holiday weekend with your family and friends. Be safe if you're traveling and don't feel guilty if you eat too much. It's one of those days when calories don't count!

This year will be a little different for me and my family. We always did a big Thanksgiving lunch at my grandparents' home. My family definitely knows how to make an exceptional buffet of turkey, ham, casseroles, and desserts galore!

The whole family will still be getting together and bringing the usual spread, but this year we're having dinner at a community center where one of my grandmothers now lives. It'll be different, but I'm sure still just as good as usual.

I certainly have a lot to be thankful for... my life is definitely blessed with a lot of good people between all the family and friends I have. I have a great job, a nice home, a sweet kitty cat, and nice belongings. I am thankful for lessons I've learned and this journey that I've been on in my life. I'm thankful for my health and for the ability to go after my dreams. I'm thankful for the opportunities and freedoms that I have. But most of all, I'm thankful for the people. My relationships make my life more fulfilling than anything I own or anything I could do. Thank you all for being a part of my life in some way.
