Spending Thanksgiving with both of my children….just two among many reasons to give thanks.
As I headed back to Carmel today I realized I was about to miss the best part of Thanksgiving: No Leftovers as long as you don’t count the 3 loaves of pumpkin bread waiting at home.
Yes I had consumed enough to hold me till next year’s dinner; but it’s not Thanksgiving without leftovers. So I decided on something different — leftover Thanksgiving spirit. For the rest of the week, I would find reasons to give thanks—especially little things I often overlook.
Sure enough, after a 6- hour drive home, there it was—-something wonderful was waiting just for me—a parking space. Perfectly situated and perfectly timed to something else waiting for me—another reason to be thankful.
I’m sure everyone can find reasons for post-Thanksgiving thanks; and I hope you’ll let me know.
