My Reasons To Say Thanks

Thursday, November 22nd, 2012


My hubby is (hands down) THE BEST turkey cook in the world.  His "technique" is amazing!  Never have we had to eat a dried out gacky turkey.  This year was no exception.  Tender juicy and delicious turkey!!  My cornbread dressing wasn't too shabby either!


Me, peeking at the finished product.  I wish you could smell pictures!


All these two cared about was filling their stomachs, napping & football.  I have to admit, those were the highlights of my day too.


This poor old gal has had a rough day.  This cooking stuff wears her out.  She couldn't take the deliciousness of all the turkey snacks Dad gave her.  It was like doggy heaven.


This headshot is all you're getting…..I'm starting a diet MONDAY!!  Not even joking!  I actually paid $10 to join a weight-loss challenge at work.  I'm sick of looking chubby and not being able to wear my clothes.  The only problem?  I'm afraid….I'll fail.  Pray for me.  I don't think it's so easy to lose weight now that I'm forty-something!

I know many are gearing up for the biggest shopping day of the year…but my family and I are happy to stay home and let the bargain shoppers crawl all over one another.  I can't help but think about all the folks working in the retail world.  How cruddy it must be to leave their families to go into work where people are acting like crazy loons over great deals.  My prayers are with both groups, the shoppers and the employees.  There isn't a deal great enough to entice me out there.


Thank you for my life.  You have graciously covered me with blessings both in family and friends as well as material comforts.  I'm grateful for little things and big alike that make my life easier and more special.  I never want to take any of it for granted.
