Happy Thanksgiving!!

j0396792.jpgOver the hills and through the trees to grandma’s house we go….

It’s more like through eight traffic lights to mama’s house I go to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. We will be feasting on the standards: fried turkey, dressing with cranberry sauce, candied yams, macaroni & cheese, veggie medley, dinner rolls, gumbo, sweet potato pie, pecan pie, yellow cake with chocolate icing.  I will probably be in a food induced coma by 3 pm. 🙂

When I rise in the morning, my first thought is usually “Thank you Jesus“.  I thank Him for blessing me with another day to get it right. I am thankful for my health, my peace of mind and the overall use of my faculties. I’m thankful to have a place to call home where I can rest my head; thankful for a job doing what I love and even for the 1+ hour commute.

I am thankful for my family: my mom (Joy) whom I love and respect even through the challenges of our relationship because being her “Mini-Me” is not always easy 🙂 ; my sister (Vee) and our improving relationship; my niece (Mook) who is blossoming into a better woman and mother every day; my nephews (Sky & Jay-Jay) who melt my heart on a regular.

I am thankful for friends: L-Boogie, S-Spoon, San, Mint, Nette. Whether I talk to you daily or not know that I love you deeply and each of you have impacted and influenced my life.

I am thankful for on-line and blogging friends: AJ for inviting me to be a guest contributor on her blog Over Analyze It. This single action was a tremendous confidence booster and has motivated me to continue writing. My American Idol Exiles community: Shay, Jex, Kimmy, Nana, Luvstoread, Carla, Eve, RC, Shaun, etc. You guys help me through the work day by making me laugh, sometimes so hard I have to clean my laptop monitor!

So today while blessing the fabulous feast mom has prepared I will again say “Thank you Jesus” for all of this and more!

I am truly blessed! 🙂

One thought on “Happy Thanksgiving!!

  1. I am also thankful for the many blessings God has bestowed upon me. Sometimes I didn’t realize certain circumstances were blessings, but he has always worked things out for my good.

    Thanksgiving is always a special time for us because we like to share our blessings with others by cooking up so much food that they roll out of the house lol.

    I am also thankful for finding my online friends that take the time to read my thoughts on the regular!
