GGG – Day 28 – Thanksgiving

Today is Thanksgiving in America.

Some of us started the day with a hike through beautiful Wildwood and enjoyed time together, exercise before the big dinner, and being out in nature.

Today I am thankful that my parents opened their home up for 30 of us to gather and share a meal together. Thank you for cooking the turkey and cooking so many side dishes! The meal was fabulous and your gracious hospitality was so appreciated.

I am thankful that my daughter shared her creative gifts and made personalized name tags for every guest. I loved seeing everyone’s names and thinking of each person that was gathered at the table.

I am thankful for my cousins and their families that chose to join the festivities and brought appetizers and food to share.

I am thankful that all my siblings were together.

I am thankful for the new friends and old friends that joined together to celebrate today, because that’s what friends do.

I loved watching all the cousins playing together and seeing the guys sharing stories and the women working together and socializing too.

Thank you to Lenny and Zach for playing the guitar for us. Sing alongs are always fun and bring so much energy to a group.

Our celebration brought us all together to share one day and for this, the abundant food and drink, the sweet moments and shared smiles and laughter and bonding, I am thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving!
