I am thankful that I have tons of leftovers and won't have to cook a meal for three months. I am thankful that I love turkey. And thankful that we are able to put this bounty on our tables and share a day filled with good food and love, even if (one of us) would rather have been at a restaurant having someone else go through all the fuss and wash the dishes.
I am thankful for second chances.
I am thankful that the grand-dogs did not decorate the lovely Oriental rug with the remnants of their own Thanksgiving feast. They are good dogs.
I am thankful for GF cornbread so that I can have stuffing (is it still stuffing if it's not put in the turkey? Or does that make it something else? Dressing? But that would connote that it's ON the turkey. Which it wasn't). Sometimes I'm not so thankful for my wondering mind.
I am thankful I didn't have to wear my Fat Pants.
I am thankful that the cats didn't hold it against me for not taking them to the grandparents. This gave them the opportunity to find every plastic bag not safely stowed out of reach and chew the ends off. What is it with cats and plastic bags? Can anyone tell me?
I am thankful for Todays and for Next Weeks.
