thanksgiving {why I like it}

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays.  This time of year reminds me of all the things I’m thankful for.  Obviously the biggies, like family, home, enough clothing, the faithfulness of God, etc.  But all the other things, too.

    things I’m thankful for:  
    my musical children
    pumpkin recipes
    the car we inherited from my grandma
    a son that REALLY can cook [we’re not talking just boxed mac & cheese, friends]
    a hilarious beagle named CJ
    a summer time veggie garden in my backyard 
    AND participating in a community garden
    the magnolia tree Chip gave me one anniversary
    my daughter’s very accurate Russian accent
    books by Lisa Samson
    my Starbucks card
    my Kitchenaid mixer and the sentimental story that goes with it
    the piano in our living room that was old when my folks bought it in the ’70s
    hearing my son play jazz on said piano
