End of November – day of Gratitude

There are so many people and things to be grateful for and as I reflect on a few of them this morning of Thanksgiving, I’m reminded to close my eyes, open my ears and listen. What do I hear?

WNCW radio playing a host of wonderful music to cook by, laugh at, sing to and dance while twirling around in the kitchen

My husband’s whisper of gratitude for me in his life

God’s whisper I love you and my response, I love you too!

Now, to open my eyes – the sun is shining amid the bare branches with a few leaves waiting for that strong breeze to lay them to rest on the ground below

An amazing blue sky that reaches to the heavens

The ground below my feet, wiggling of my toes

The beat of a drum

The smell of sweet potatoes baking in the oven soon, to be turned into an amazing sweet potato pie

Cornbread cooked last night in preparation for baked cornbread dressing and perhaps Spfe-his – a Lebanese hors d’oeuvres of lamb, cinnamon, pine nuts and more

My body swaying to the rhythm of the drum

Endless possibilities

Mountain vistas and sunsets

Memories of a moment captured for a Mom’s hug

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Love, Anita
