Things that make me happy two days before Thanksgiving

  • Seeing a bald eagle fly over the river and land in a tree along the path where I ran this morning
  • A chance to cuddle with my sweet cat who would NOT let me journal this morning
  • Discovering that I had to go TWO sizes smaller, instead of the one I expected, with the new jeans I bought today
  • Cold meatloaf sandwich and sweet potatoes, leftovers from dinner last night with good friends
  • Dinner tonight with the group from church that I went through the new members class with (we've added a few others since then too) where I will get to hold a baby, chase a toddler or two, try to get a very shy four-year-old to talk to me, and enjoy the company of good friends
  • Life in a place where I can know and be known, love and be loved

I'm off to my mom's tomorrow. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Nice to read. I am so very impressed that you went down TWO sizes, esp. since I just bought the next larger size. . . . depressing.

Belatedly, so happy for you! And I hope today was good, too. (My new jeans are now so loose I can almost slide them off without unzipping.)
