One Week and Counting

November 10th, 2014

This past weekend was spent in an early Thanksgiving with friends.   It started last year and the group of seven couples decided to turn it into a tradition.   This year- someone else in the group hosted and another feast and great time by all was had.   It really made me happy that they decided to have it earlier in the month, since we will actually be at mom and diddys celebrating Thanksgiving with them when the day actually comes-   so it was great to have a ‘kick-off’ to the holiday season a little early.

The thing I love the most- is that we’re a group of people who love to cook and bake-   so everything was from scratch, including my Great Aunt Gladys’ homemade stuffing made an appearance.   Between the main course and dessert- we took a two mile walk along the river and through the quaint town that my good friend Niki lives in.  Bliss- is the only way that I know how to describe it-   one thing is for sure- I’m grateful for each and every one of them.

Our trip home is in less than a week-  In fact, this time one week from now- we should be landing in Atlanta for our short layover.  I’m ready-  we both are.    I’m also going to be helping mom, alongside my best friend of many years to organize and revamp mom’s sewing room-    I’m surprised that she’s trusting us to the task, but I know it will be fun-  and she’ll actually be able to find things once we’re done.

Plus plans with family and friends- and some other life-changing things possibly happening.    Life is good-  and I need to remember more and more to take the time to really pause and think about just how blessed I am.
