Ah... Thanksgiving is tomorrow. I was just lying in bed in our little loft watching the sun come up over the mountains and was overcome with how much I have to be thankful for this past year. There's sooo much. I'm not going to make a list or anything, but suffice it to say, I feel very fortunate. The "good" is always mixed with the "bad", but there is so much good. And without the bad, how does one measure and appreciate the good?
The sun is just about up and I'm thinking about my day. I'm going to take a break from crocheting and spiff up the house so it'll be nice for tomorrow. Mike is leaving work early and we've got a date to watch the Christmas lights get turned on in our little town tonight. All the shops are dressed up in their Christmas best and it all looks so quaint and pretty. It's a very small town... the "downtown" is basically a square with shops that surround it - and it has an old fashioned feel to it. I'm going to take my camera and tripod to see if I can get some nice pictures. All the little shops will to be open tomorrow! Since this town is a bit of a mountain tourist destination, they like to have them open for all the guests staying here; it will be bustling with activity!
I sometimes have to pinch myself to believe that I am finally living in the woods in the mountains in a little cabin. I've wanted to be here my whole life... and here I am with Mike, the man I've wanted my whole life as well. I'm glad I learned patience - or I might have given up on my dreams a long time ago.
Thanksgiving? Yep, I certainly have a lot to be thankful for.
