As I was getting ready this morning, I overheard a news piece about the busiest travel day of the year. And then it struck me that this time next year, I will be one of those doing the travelling. I may be heading home by plane, I may be heading home by car but it will be a lot longer than the 20 minute drive I have tomorrow. It will be such a different experience.
With the weather calling for rain, sleet, & snow in the next few days I find that I am thankful that I will be so close. I am also thankful that I have a family that makes getting together a priority. I am thankful that we will have plenty of food to eat. We will be cooking 55lbs of turkey, 20lbs of potatoes, 5lbs of stuffing and a whole lot of other yummy stuff! And I am thankful we can get together in a warm home and that I will be seeing 27 of the people I love most.
I have a lot to be thankful for this year, but I want to know…
What are you thankful for?
