‘Twas the night before Thanksgiving,
And all through the house
Not a creature was stirring.
Not even a mouse.
I would freak if I saw a mouse in this house. (Let’s pray that never happens!)
Seriously, though, it’s Thanksgiving eve. I’m home, in my recliner, with my feet up after a full day of decorating, organizing and cleaning.
Yes, I decorated for Christmas. Please don’t judge me. It’s just what I do. (I explained it in this post.)
No one is home at this hour, but soon this house will be bustling. My husband will soon arrive home with dinner in hand. (Yes!) Our son will walk in the door and plop his stuff down after he gets off work in a couple hours. And, our daughter is coming home tonight to spend the night. Yes! She’s coming home! And will be sleeping in her own room. I can’t tell you how that fills my heart with such joy and thankfulness!
When I climb into bed tonight, it’ll be like “old times.” Having all four of us at home again. And morning. How beautiful I imagine that’s going to be… eating breakfast all together. I seriously can’t remember the last time that happened.
And Thanksgiving Day together. I am filled with anticipation of the day!
This girl is thankful for so much tonight.
What about you?
What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving eve?
We each have much to be thankful for. May we each recall those things, tonight and tomorrow, and in the days to come.
Friend, may I take this moment to say I’m thankful for you, and for each and every friend I’ve made through this writing journey thus far. You are a blessing to me! You inspire me to continue to write, to share, to be real about life.
It’s a gift to journey alongside of you.
May your Thanksgiving be a blessing!
