Continuing on my journey past one thousand gifts....
A week ago our granddaughter, Youngest Sweetie celebrated her first birthday. It was a large party with family, friends, food and presents. The weather was beautiful and the birthday girl was happy.
Thanksgiving is this Thursday. We have a family tradition of going to one of Wonderful Husband's sister's home for the meal. I will bring my cheese onions which are a tradition from my side of the family and it will be challenging for my introverted self to be surrounded by the crowd and the noise, yet I am still thankful.
1035 - 1042 on my list beyond One Thousand Gifts.
I am giving thanks for:
1035. our happy, one year old granddaughter
1036. our daughter and son-in-law. Such loving parents.
1037. family, food, and fun of a birthday celebration and Thanksgiving
1038. our son coming to visit for the holiday
1039. recognizing that every day is a gift
1040. feeling helpful while taking dinner to Diane who broke her leg
1041. my dentist who "crowned" my broken tooth in one visit. Very efficient.
1042. Christmas CDs playing in my van. Sing-along anyone?
