How Many Thanksgivings will you be celebrating this year?
Will you be visiting your parent's and your spouses, too?
Nowadays, many of us have blended families.
So there could easily be 3 or 4 celebrations before you know it.
(I think my step-son had 5 or 6 Christmases last year. Ack!)
And, I'm not complaining!
I love getting together with everyone - football in one room, games in another, so much laughter...and pumpkin pie!
This year we'll be forgoing our Thankful Tree, thought we liked it a lot! (It ended up becoming a permanent fixture in one of the bedrooms - the branches wrapped in white Christmas lights.
Tonight my husband I will begin defrosting a turkey for this weekend. Yep, it's a bit early. Hopefully, it will be a taste of the larger Thanksgivings to come. (Think of it as the Tryptophan minor leagues.)
Maybe I'll rustle up some Kentucky corn pudding or try a new recipe - you never know.
Most importantly, the pre-holiday warm-up will give us an opportunity to quietly reflect on how very blessed and thankful we are.
