Day 22: Abundance


Thanksgiving Day, 2012

Our menu for today:
Turkey
Dressing
Mashed Potatoes and Gravy
Cranberry Relish
Roasted Butternut Squash, Sweet Potatoes, and Beets
Rolls
Apple Pie
Pumpkin Pie with Whipped Cream

We all ate our fill and then some.
Grandpa and Grandma took home enough leftovers to last them a couple days.
We, at home, have enough leftovers to last us a couple days as well.

We used the nice dishes, glasses and silverware.
That means we have two sets of tableware.

We ate our meal in the dining room.
Which means we have two dining areas in our house.

We filled our dishwasher with dishes and hand washed the special stuff.
That means we have an abundance of water.

Grandpa and Grandma parked two deep in our driveway.
Which means we have more than one car.

I am so very lucky.  So very blessed.
As silly as it sounds, I'm thankful that I am aware of my good fortune.
I can't imagine taking all these things for granted.
