This has to be my favorite holiday, less stress, and more fun. I don't always get to be with my kids but that is alright, they rotate between parents. This is a holiday for traveling. This year, the turkey and trimmings are at my sissy's house in Central Florida. I have to find some clothing to wear because going north it gets cold. I am sitting here with my shorts on, the last couple of days have been a bit chilly in the 60's. It's all I can do to stay warm at night. Thank goodness my kritters have the same thought, last night I had about a half dozen kitties and my two dogs keeping me warm. When I woke this morning, I looked up to see bodies everywhere.
My family rotates the Thanksgiving Holiday, which is a great idea, between the four of us. Next year is my turn and there is no way to out-do my sister Cheryl, but I don't feel bad. I just look forward to the next one. Last year was at my brothers home with lots and lots of food and lots and lots of people. It's always different and it's always fun. After my turn is June's, she has the right idea, no stress, no mess in the kitchen, no exhaustion, she caters the affair and enjoys the fun. We all get a chance to visit the Keys, do a little fishing and sun-bathing.
All our lives have changed so much, the kids have grown, some have their own kids and their own celebrations, some people have to work and some are retired. No matter how the miles separate us, we still enjoy the time and the smiles we have together. Each day is special in our lives and knowing I have family and friends that I can call anytime I need one of those smiles, is precious.
Happy Thanksgiving.
