I’m continuing to post about things I’m thankful for on Thursdays for the month of November. I think about being thankful every day but it’s nice to take some take to acknowledge it in a special way at this time of year.
- I’m thankful for the Thanksgiving Luncheon that was yesterday at the Council on Aging where I work. There were 65 seniors in attendance and we had volunteers from the police department and town hall to help with serving and cleaning up. This was the first big event for our new cook and she did a fabulous job cooking all of those turkeys and sides. The best part for me was sharing this moment with my colleagues and just being with the seniors that attend, hearing their stories, seeing them enjoy a slice of pie, and wishing them a Happy Thanksgiving. It’s one of my favorite days at the COA and I’m truly thankful to be a part of something that brings joy to a lot of people.
- I’m thankful for one week ago tonight when Dale and I babysat Jackie. We took him out to dinner, which was really fun, and then brought him back to our house where we played and hung out. He’s quite good at playing by himself and it’s so fun to watch him do that. He eventually fell asleep on the couch and when Dale went to bed I tucked Jackie in next to him while I waited up for his Mom and Dad to come get him. When I went in to check on him he had snuggled up to Dale and they were both sound asleep and it filled my heart with so much gratitude to see that.
- I’m thankful that I’ll be celebrating Friendsgiving this Saturday at Sean’s house. I know it will be a wonderful time of food and fun and wine and friends. You just can’t go wrong with that combination!
There are so many moments in a week to be thankful for if we just stop and look for them.
