I hope you are enjoying your holiday week as much as I am. My daughter is home from college and I am enjoying spending every precious moment with her. Nothing feels better than Mama Bear having all of her cubs home at one time. The first night my daughter was home I cooked one of her favorite meals. As I set the table, it was such a joy to set 4 place settings, rather than 3 I have been setting since she left for school. I can’t tell you how much my heart jumped for joy when we all held hands and prayed for the bountiful feast in front of us.
And then, the giggling and laughing as we all shared stories warmed my heart beyond measure. I am a big believer in what Audrey Hepburn says:
I am playing hookie from work this week so that I can soak in every last precious moment with my family. It was such a delight when my 18 year old crawled into bed to snuggle with me this morning. It’s the little things that enrich our lives. It’s not the size of your bank account, the car you drive, or the clothes you wear that make life special. It is our loving relationships with family and friends that make life worthwhile!
I hope this Thanksgiving finds you full of gratitude for all the special people in your lives. My cup runneth over with thanks for my family and real life friends.
I am also so very thankful for YOU, my dear Hadley Court readers.
I wish you and your families an abundance of bountiful blessings this Thanksgiving holiday.
