2009 has been a great year and i have so very much for which to be thankful this year. 🙂
happy thanksgiving, all. i hope you find yourself around those who love you and you have a chance to reflect on all of the blessings you’ve had this year. even if you cannot be with your family, i hope you’ve found yourself surrounded by the family we create for ourselves – friends.
today, i’m so unbeliveably thankful for family, particularly my big brother.
my brother is flying in today. he called me a few weeks ago to ask me to pick him up from the airport. i haven’t seen him since may 2008. he moved to amsterdam right after i graduated and moved back this fall. so i’m making a small version of dinner with all of our favorites. a long cry from the bratty little sister who used to get him in trouble everywhere we went.
i wish you and yours the happiest of thanksgivings.
thanksgiving is more than eating, chuck… those early pilgrims were thankful for what had happened to them, and we should be thankful, too. we should just be thankful for being together. i think that’s what they mean by ‘thanksgiving,’ charlie brown.
