Sailing into Thanksgiving...

As I sit in my favorite chair, cuddling with my favorite 5-year-old this morning, I am amazed that Thanksgiving is upon us. Even after five years living in the desert, this holiday that seems to arrive just as summer is waning here takes me by surprise.  I could believe it is almost Halloween...the weather seems just about perfect for that. But I have barely broken out the blue jeans yet, how is it possible that Thanksgiving is upon us?!

I am not complaining. Really. I love my flip-flop-wearing lifestyle...I'm just saying that I am surprised.

But oh-so-thankful. I love Thanksgiving Day -- counting our blessings (abundant!!), mashed potatoes and cornbread dressing (yes, we have Turkey too....but the potatoes and dressing...oh my!), Macy's parade, some football....oh, I love Thanksgiving!

So, if you need me, I'll be making my grocery list, donning my flip-flops, making some pilgrim hats....and getting ready for one of our favorite days of the year!

Thanksgiving 2009....Can't wait to see what this year will bring!
May your week of Thanksgiving be especially blessed!
