Blessed & Thankful

I had an early start to Thanksgiving on Sunday. One of my mom's dear friends invited me over to have Sunday/early Thanksgiving dinner with her and her family. It was so warm and inviting; I truly did appreciate being included with their family and bless her heart for making sure her friend's daughter is being looked after. I really have a new collection of mothers and it's pretty cute to see them step up and give the same rounds of 20 questions that my mom would have when it comes to anything from men, career, and life in general.

It's never fails. At times when I'm worried about emotions that will hit me around the holidays I have been extremely blessed with friends and family and unexpected opportunities to see the warm and loving nature of people.

I'm getting ready to leave for the other side of the state and Thanksgiving with my Granny and the rest of the family. My uncle has moved back up from Texas so it will be a great addition to have him around for the holiday dinner. Slowly my family seems to be putting itself back together after we seemed to have lost our "glue". The dynamics are shifting and it's an interesting mix of new and different along with old and reliable.

I am thankful for so many things in my life. I am surrounded by so much love and a family that some of us were born into and others have been added along the way. I have my family, I have my health, I have a roof over my head, food in my belly, and really everything I need.

I wish everyone to have as many blessings as I have this holiday season. Eat, drink and be merry!
