feeling or expressing gratitude; appreciative.
The brussell sprouts are ready for roasting, infused with garlic and key lime spice mix. The green beans are marinating in a mustard vinaigrette. I made my Nana's lime jello mold with pineapple and cottage cheese. It makes my mother shudder, but I don't care.
The apple crisp is in the oven. The smell of cardomon and cinnamon wafts through to the living room. I am ready for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
The last six months have been incredibly difficult. But God is incredibly good. God IS love. He isn't just loving. He IS love.
Today I am thankful for so many things. I'm thankful for my husband. I'm thankful for my family, for medical coverage, for a roof over my head, and so thankful for sugar-free cinnamon dolce lattes. I'm thankful for my education, for my friends (especially my amazing friend and spiritual mentor, Terry), for improving health, and for God's boundless grace.
And, God, thanks a whole lot for her:
What a gift, each and every day, she is.
Give thanks with a grateful heart,
Give thanks to the Holy One.
And have a Happy Turkey Day
