Happy Belated Thanksgiving
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Even in saying that, I know that holidays can be the most stressful time of year.
Things that happen during the holidays seem magnified and the drama can be more intense. I am sure you can all relate to some extent.
We decided that this year, we would spend our Thanksgiving at home. We were invited to family and friends, but we just really felt the need to stay at home. We had a nice, small turkey dinner for just the two of us around 1pm and then took a 2 mile walk with our dog enjoying the 'spring like' weather.
Later that evening, we were invited to some friends to celebrate a birthday. That was fun! We hadn't planned on going anywhere....but finally gave in :-)
Talked with some family members and friends on the phone and just were truly thankful for the many blessings in our lives. We all have stress and worries especially during this economy but it doesn't take much to find blessings all around us if we just take the time to stop and count them.
Hopefully, this weekend, after we get our tree up......I can sit and make some cards. My friend promised to take some photos again! I sure miss my camera!!! :-(
Have a great day and if any of you go shopping today....be careful....and hope you find some great bargains!!
Christmas decorating can now officially begin!!
