Tomorrow it starts...

My favorite morning of Orange Julius, Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, and Orange Cinnamon Rolls homemade! I plan on getting up early and cooking. This is what I do. I love it. I love the smells as they fill the house and the sounds of the parade in the background and! It will only be 3 of us this year but no need to worry because it is a trade off for Christmas.
All of our children will be home this year.
So, I am excited. I am anticipating great JOY and super warm HUGS.
It is Thanksgiving and I am thankful for so much...but here is a list that I have started...

1. Healthy Children
2. Zachary is stateside and not in Iraq/Afghanistan
3. New Friends (Lorie, Greg, April, & Robin)
4. A New Home
5. Warmth and Clothing
6. Christmas Spirit (hit me early)
7. Love and Companionship my husband gives me
8. Funny things my daughter says
9. My new daughter-in-law "Chelsey"
10. Time for reflection and sharing my thoughts

I think this is it for now, really. I keep a journal and there are more intimate things that I am so very thankful for. I am thankful that God has taught me valuable lessons this year. I am thankful that God reminds me everyday why I am so blessed and humbled with everything he provides for me. God is Real, God is Miraculous, God is Never Changing...I am wishing you a happy Thanksgiving and may the Peace of God and his blessings warm you and your family this Thanksgiving Holiday.
