Tomorrow is Thanksgiving…….I am cooking, and I am close to being ready. I made this Y-U-M-M-Y Cranberry Shortbread last night, and of course I snitched a little bit of it fresh out the oven! Shhh don’t tell anyone, no one will ever notice the little missing spot! 🙂
And tomorrow I am making apple crisp, mashed potatoes, turkey, gravy, corn casserole and lots of the other traditional fixins. It should be a nice day, filled with food, fun, football, and FAMILY.
But I am thinking there is so much more to the day then food and family. I had such a bad attitude about work this week, and that attitude had trickled into my home life also. I have been far from thankful for much of anything. But last night while out for my usual power walk, I was praying about my attitude. I was praying about being better NOT bitter! And as I prayed, and prayed, and prayed ( this attitude was pretty stubborn) my attitude began to disappear. And suddenly I could actually think in terms of truly being thankful.
I realized once again that being thankful is a attitude. How is your attitude this THANKSgiving?
I am truly thankful for simply being able to BE thankful! 🙂
