I'm sure you're all ready of the end of my month of thanks...
I'll keep it brief, I know we all have things to do. Today, I'm thankful for Thanksgiving Day itself. It's a labor intensive day for those of us cooking - but it's done out of love and out of thanks for everything around us in the past year.
I'm thankful for the police, firefighters, nurses, doctors and other first responders who have to rotate through working on holiday. I'm thankful that it's illegal in MA to open for Black Friday before midnight - all of you who go shopping immediately after Thanksgiving dinner are crazy! I love ya...but you're crazy!
I'm thankful for being forced to cook some foods that are only prepared on holiday. As much as they aren't my favorites, it keeps family traditions alive. I'm thankful that even though I have to work tomorrow, it's likely to be a quiet day where I can sneak in a few projects of my own (shh...don't tell anyone!).
What are you thankful for this year? Anything you've been surprised to see on my list so far...or shocked I've left off? A few more days of things I'm thankful for and you we can move firmly into December!
