Yes, I know we are all supposed to be thankful at Thanksgiving. But I’ll be honest. Many years I’m so full of stress, so overwhelmed, and so frazzled that by the time the turkey is carved the very last thing I feel is thankful.
(I still say it’s my favorite holiday. Even if it does stress me out.)
This year, as I begin to finalize our plans for Thanksgiving week, I’m profoundly thankful. I’m hoping it will stick.
I’m hostessing in-laws and strange dogs. I’m driving six hours (round trip) to enable family to be at my house. I’m cooking for severe allergies. At first glance, you may think I need to be checked into the crazy farm. But… hear me out.
