Come ye thankful people come...

This week is Thanksgiving. I couldn't be happier. Over the years I have come to have a tender spot in my heart for this beloved holiday. In fact I might say that it is my favorite holiday. Strong words yes, but I say what I feel. haha OK.

Reasons to love this holiday:

It is untainted by the world. You do not have to buy an enormous amount of gifts. You do not have to send out cards, there will only be friends and family knocking on your door asking for treats and you need not decorate the house.

The crowning event is a HUGE meal. Food every where. Lots of good, good food. People pull out the big guns and show up with their A games. I just happen to adore roast turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, all the salads, pies and desserts. MMMmmm!

Another reason: I like going to the movies on Thanksgiving. You might think it be a bit cruel, making other people work on a holiday. Truth be told, I just look at it as another reason to be grateful. Thank you to all those high school teenagers who work at the movie theater on Thanksgiving. Thank you.

One thing that does make me sad is the fact that all those Christmas fanatics over look this day. Slow down with the Christmas already ok? Let us give thanks for a minute. Sigh. You have the day after Thanksgiving to begin all your Christmas love. Not a day sooner.
mmmkay?

Happy Thanksgiving!

love, me.

You're funny. Remember that time I went to your Auntie Kays house and had Thanksgiving with yall. That was so sweet of you to include me. I remember you warned me before entering your brothers were rough and your dad said stuff without thinking sometimes. I reminised on this over Thanksgiving actually. Good Times.
