I know Halloween just past and Thanksgiving is not yet here, but I’m ready for Christmas. I love Christmas! It’s my most favoritest holiday of the year. Halloween is okay for the kids, especially if they share their candy with me, but I have never cared for Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is a day spent preparing a huge meal (and I don’t like to cook or eat meat), just so it can be devoured in 30 minutes or less. Hours and hours of cooking and baking and it’s gone before I can say pass the meat. (Just kidding… ‘cuz you will never hear me say please pass the meat!) And then there’s the kitchen. It always looks like a hurricane passed straight through it after all that cooking. There are so many dishes to do that I have to run the dishwasher two times in one day. And that means I have to empty it two times in one day!! See where I going with this?? It just keeps getting worse! And there are sooo many left-overs that we are eating turkey for the next week. And it’s a meal I really didn’t want to have in the first place! All to show thankfulness. Really? Can’t we just order pizza?
Did I mention I’m in a Bible Study called “Lord, Change my Attitude”? I think it’s helping. : )
P.S. I am truly thankful and count my blessings everyday. And we are going out to dinner for Thanksgiving this year. ; )
