Full Hearts…

Today…I am thankful…and…hopefully…I will be tomorrow…and the next day…and the next…and the next…and every day after that…

Hopefully…I won’t rely on…Thanksgiving Day…or even the entire month of November…to take the time to remember all of the blessings in my life…but…I know…there are days that I will forget…in the midst of life complications…and…just busyness…just how fortunate I am…

In fact…just to be able to write this blog…involves many a blessing…freedom of speech…the internet…health…a computer…electricity…ideas…coffee…and last but not least…Bertha

Who…reminds me…that…yes…I will forget on many days to truly appreciate all that I am and all that I have…but…she says…that’s why there are 365 days in the year…and that as long as I hit more than…183…of them…I’ll be doing alright…

Oh…andBertha…has a Thanksgiving blessing for everyone…

Happy Thanksgiving everyone…may your hearts be even fuller than your tummies!

Do the Trot…Do the Turkey Trot…

There’s a phenomena sweeping our county this very morning…the annual Turkey Trot…actually trots…because they are everywhere…I have a daughter participating in one in Memphis…another near Orlando…a friend in Pennsylvania…





And while the logistics of the races probably differ…the purpose is pretty much the same…run a 3 or 5K…so you can eat a delightful Thanksgiving dinner…with less guilt…
Personally…I’ve never participated…considered walking it last year…but my achy, breaky body wasn’t in the mood…so I minded the turkey in the oven instead…oh…and I took the post-race picture…Let’s Get Sauced…clever slogan…don’t cha think?
I didn’t take the pre-race photo of Sarah and the girls in their turkey caps that she made them…look closely…those round things over the ears are actually drum sticks…

All this festivity makes me want to participate…of course…we aren’t having one close by…that I know of…but it’s okay…Bertha says…I don’t have to Turkey Trot to get a bit of exercise…and she’s right…it’s supposed to be a beautiful day…a walk in the sunshine might be nice…and what a wonderful time to contemplate all the things that I am truly thankful for…


 Happy Thanksgiving…one and all…
