I love Thanksgiving. I love the “one for all, and all for one” spirit of the day. I’ve always felt very blessed each holiday season, but this Thanksgiving even more so.
Earlier this week, driving home I was unfortunate enough to be in a car accident…but very fortunate to shakily walk away with only a headache. I thank the dear Lord, as well as the old girl, my Volvo wagon, for keeping me safe. Sadly she was not so fortunate, and may have given up her life for me, and may need to be totaled.
What got my attention (big time!) was when I went to take some key things out of my car before it was hauled away. My wonderful, trusty vintage picnic basket (my stylish catch-all) that I keep in the back seat, was smashed to smithereens! I thought, how did that happen? You know, until something like this happens, you really don’t think about your mortality.
So this Thanksgiving, as I’m very busy getting ready for this holiday, I’m also very busy counting my blessings…and one of them is you.
Thank you so very much for joining me on this Country House journey…for all your love and support. It truly means the world to me!
Wishing you and your dear family and friends a very blessed and happy Thanksgiving!
