being military and living wherever the military sends us, we rarely are surrounded by family during the thanksgiving holiday. i actually can’t remember the last time i saw family at thanksgiving [probably in my 20s]. but we almost always have invitations from friends [often our military family] on thanksgiving day. this year was no different — loving friends opening their hearts and homes to us, for thanksgiving dinner. BUT we declined those invitations because we thought we were going to spend the day at disney world. UNTIL we learned that even thanksgiving day itself is one of the busiest days of the year at disney. so very last minute, we decided to do a simple thanksgiving late-lunch [turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, green bean casserole, stuffing, strawberry jello salad and pumpkin pie] at home, followed by a movie [hugo to be exact].
we are so blessed and fortunate. and i am so thankful…
wishing you all a very happy thanksgiving — surrounded by and doing whatever you love and choose to do on this day of celebration and gratitude.
