The turkey has been cooked (successfully). Dinner has been eaten. Leftovers have all been divided and put away. Dessert and coffee has been consumed. The kitchen has been cleaned. The parents have packed up and headed out. All of this happened in moments. Snippets of time. Writing a gratitude entry on the day after the Thanksgiving Holiday should practically write itself. The turkey eaters raved over the turkey and I have yet to hear any news of food poisoning. Surprisingly enough, there were no Lucille Ball moments. In fact, the entire meal was easy peasy. I have a small kitchen and I like it that way. I was a bit worried about how mom and I would get along in such a small space, but we handled it quite well. It reminded me of when I would work next to mom in her kitchen when I was little except this time I had an idea of what I was doing.
I am thankful that we were able to sit down and share our Thanksgiving meal together in our first house. I am thankful that my parents are still capable and able to travel to be here with us. I am thankful. Simply thankful.
Hope everyone had a wonderful and safe Holiday and Thankful Friday.
