The Approach of YulePosted by Jia
“For today and its blessings, I owe the world an attitude of gratitude.”
- Clarence E. Hodges
Today I would like to say thank you for having food enough to put out a feast for Thanksgiving. I spent the bulk of the afternoon and evening on Wednesday making all my sides so that on the big day all that was left to do was roast the bird, make the gravy, and heat everything else up.
Today I would like to say thank you for the gift of our friend Casey’s company for the holiday. It’s usually just the 5 of us, so it was a true pleasure to have another person to celebrate the day.
Today I would like to say thank you for being more than half-way done with my holiday shopping. I think I’ve once again been able to pull off getting the girls the things they want for the best possible prices. This is the one time of year that we spoil them a bit (OK some years more than a bit) but we are not ones to buy them video games and other pricey “wants” during the rest of the year for no occasion.
Today I would like to say thank you for the approach of 2011. I love New Year’s .. the hope it brings .. the chance it represents to start over. A whole year with no mistakes in it yet.
