Racing around today, attempting to get things set up for Thanksgiving, I had to stop and remind myself what this day is all about.
It is not about finding seven matching dining chairs – it is about gratitude.
Gratitude for the blessings we have already received – and the ones that are on their way.
So I just jotted down the first three that came to mind:
Turkey basters – For the obvious, once a year reason; and also for their myriad of other uses including: getting the leftover water out of the Christmas Tree stand before you drag it across the room and out the door to the curb. ( Which BTW is one of the saddest days of my entire year, it makes me tear up just thinking about it)
Candles with wooden wicks – LOVE. I’m so sick of burning my fingers, fishing a traditional wick out of hot wax. Many a perfectly good candle has been thrown (out) due to wick drowning. And along those lines, drip-less tapered candles. SO GRATEFUL. If you’ve ever had to use a hot iron to get the wax out of your tablecloth, then you know what I mean.
Tweezers – For my migrating chin hair. Hey, maybe you guys know – Does Makita make tweezers? The hair on my chin/jaw/nose now has the gauge and strength of copper wire.
Okay, so I went first, now YOU go!
Give me three things you’re grateful for.
Come on! You can think of three.
Leave them in the comments below.
PS. Don’t be shy, nobody looks at the comments but me.
Don’t let this kid “one up” you!
