Thanksgiving Day, 2012
Our menu for today:
Mashed Potatoes and Gravy
Roasted Butternut Squash, Sweet Potatoes, and Beets
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.
