I am the MOST prepared I have been for a holiday event in a while and I still don't feel prepared.. But the things I feel unprepared about are about money-- if I had spent "x" more pennies I could have done "x". But I didn't! I truthfully I am glad I didn't!
It is going to be a great Thanksgiving!
All my desserts are done!
Casseroles are prepared ready to bake except for macaroni and cheese-- it's just a make fresh kind of casserole. And I have to do potatoes in the morning.
I am setting the table as much as I can but we need it for breakfast!
We will celebrate with both family and friends...it's the first holiday without Deanna..so that will be different.
I want this to be special, peaceful, memorable, well done, organized and fun! I know it's a lot to ask!
I try to think of needs that might be anticipated... But sometimes that is impossible! On the other hand I always worry about not having enough serving spoons...or running out of food... Or last minute catastrophe of some sort!
But you know what...
I am thankful. Not just because of the day. But truly thankful...
For food that is plentiful.
For a large home to serve others in.
For trust between friends.
For enough for our needs... Always.
Hope you have a Thankful Thanksgiving... With all the trimmings!
