Today, on Thanksgiving, I am grateful for the simple things.
I am grateful that today is about food and family and being together. I am just as grateful for the things that it is not: expensive, competitive, commercial.
I am grateful that I have a home for my family. That we are working together, on our own time, to make it the home of our dreams.
I am grateful for these pumpkin pancakes, which I hope will become our newest family tradition.
I am grateful for warm coats, hot tea, snow flakes and boots.
I am grateful for books and comforters and throw blankets and slippers and company holidays.
I am grateful that I got to spend the morning chasing after my Little Bear.
I am grateful for today.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
