I don’t even know if this is really a post… I guess it isnt really… I just needed somewhere to say it all.
I’m typing this while listening to my favorite Jewish man in the whole wide world sings christmas songs…. LOL It is fitting seeing as this is the only time Hanukkah and Thanksgiving will overlap in our life times?
Whilst Tallest child texts me and tells me I am ruining her life because I am not going to my mothers for Thanksgiving (again… in fact… I could be mistaken… I am getting older… but I do believe I have never had a Thanksgiving meal at my mothers home in all of my adult life)
She is joking of course… We are making plans to see each other this weekend at some point…. Small child is with his late fathers parents… and Smallest child is at her mothers this year…. Mr. Amazing and I are going to his mothers… so no cooking for me… or cleaning… or even getting dressed really if I don’t want to… but I will miss seeing the tiniest children of all.
I hate Thanksgiving… I don’t want that to be mistaken for not being thankful… or grateful for all the amazing blessings in my life.
I am so blessed
I have the most amazing people in my life… and they love me…. I them
I have children in my life who I cherish more than I have the ability to express
I have the ability to see beauty in all things.
I am a creation of the most amazing experiences …
I am so grateful for all of these things, I am so grateful for life, and the things that come and go in mine.
I am so thankful for all the people not with their families today, firefighters, service men and woman, police, doctors and nurses.
I am so thankful for this land we live in, even with all its vices.
I am so thankful for the ability to love myself, even though I am very different than what is tradition…
So much love and light to all of you and yours… eat extra stuffing… there is not nearly enough stuffing served at other times of the year.
May your day be merry and bright!
