In a Few Hours

Welcome, friends! I have switched my blog over here and so pleased that I have.

 

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. Can you believe that we are one week away from Thanksgiving? I cherish this time of year. Next week at this time, I will be at my parent’s home surrounded with friends and family. Mom and I will have been up for hours prepping the food and putting the turkey in the oven. In a few hours, the smell of spices will sweep through the house. In a few hours, football but the joyful chatter will encourage muting the TV to enjoy the laughs with family. In a few hours, we will fry a turkey so that we have plenty of leftovers to share. In a few hours, my husband’s grandparents will walk in the door with their gracious energy and hugs. In a few hours, life will be nearly perfect. Just as it is every year on Thanksgiving. Not because we have the most beautiful table setting or are the best chefs in all the land. But, it will be perfect… to me because there are many ways to define perfect.  To me, perfect is the opportunity to welcome others into your home with a grateful heart and appreciate all of the blessings of the year.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving. (Yes, this post is early, but if you know me, you know I LOVE to celebrate holidays for weeks, not just for one day…)
