Now you all just knew Ann Miller would be here!!!!! I can't believe we are coming up to Thanksgiving again. For an unusual year that seemed to drag very slowly, every week at times seemed to last a month..... it certainly flew by. What a year, and what was thrown at us. Even having a tough and shocking year, losing parts of my life, with the pandemic and the crazy political climate...I can still find things that I grateful for on a daily basis. I can most times find something to be grateful for. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, if not, my favorite. Just a day to be with family or friends. I have the fondest of memories of the day. The sights and sounds of having the parades on, getting up in the morning, smelling the aromas filling the house on a meal that would be cooking all day, and my mother , grandmother and two aunts all talking and cooking together in the kitchen , and me sneaking with every trip to the kitchen, another spoonful of the family recipe dressing, when no one looked. Two uncles sitting at back smoking cigars, or my father watching football games. I'll be heading home for the holiday with my mother and aunt and uncle. A small gathering. But the sounds and smells will still be there, and I will be grateful for the memories and thoughts that will come to mind and remember those passed on or those that can't be with us this year. I'm glad this year didn't crush me yet and I'm very thankful for myself, family and all of you, that we have not succumb to the virus. And that is something to be grateful for. Here's my mood board for this Monday!
