On this day, I am thankful for all the goodness in my life. I’m forever grateful for the experiences and lessons bestowed upon me. We remember the past. I sure do miss my parents, our grandparents, our brothers, and extended family who have gone before. I smile with the memories, flashbulb though they may be, and choose to blot out the sour notes. To me, this is a perfect day for reflection. We shouldn’t have to name it Thanksgiving and celebrate only one day a year.
“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.”― Ralph Waldo Emerson
Okay Ralph Waldo, I’m grateful for the sucky shit too. Tee Hee 😉
I know there are people protesting today. I know there are things in the world that are atrocious. I realize there are things we shouldn’t be paying homage to but in an effort to take the politics out of this day, I reclaim this time for something else. Repurpose. Evolve.
And with that, I’ll go back to enjoying a square of baked filling that was too much to make it into the pie. Yep crustless pumpkin pie for breakfast with a nice hot cup of coffee. Ah now that’s the stuff.
As always, more to come.
