'twas the night before Thanksgiving...

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 friends
For family
For food that is plentiful.
For creativity.
For a large home to serve others in.
For understanding.
For trust between friends.
For health.
For enough for our needs... Always.

Hope you have a Thankful Thanksgiving... With all the trimmings!
