Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday, a whole day set apart to relax, consider our blessings, and be thankful. What could be more heartwarming than that?
I had planned to drive to my sister's house, almost 300 miles away, but a snowstorm yesterday changed my plans. Instead I will be having dinner with my daughters and their families tonight.
Along with the snow yesterday, the weatherman is also bringing us the coldest Thanksgiving Day in 30 years. When I got up this morning, my window thermometer showed -2 degrees F ( -19 C) and there was frost on the inside of the windows.
It has been my tradition to do a hike in the morning, before the family is up, before I start cooking dinner. Some years the weather has been quite warm and I've only needed a jacket. Today I was bundled up from head to toe in my warmest down parka, fleece pants, hood, scarf, and two layers of mittens.
A beautiful walk to think my grateful thoughts, so many things to be thankful for!
