A Happy Thanksgiving

It was the best Thanksgiving I've ever had. I held no hopes or expectations going into Thursday - what with the nightmare this year has been - but maybe that's why. It was a perfect day, and thinking of it now makes me gulp back happy tears. The day was just what I needed, and I'm still warmed by the comfort of it all.

I hope yours was just as wonderful.

Before it's back to the real world tomorrow, I'm settling in near the glowing tree tonight with a stack of books, a mug of hot chocolate, the flicker of candles and lots of Christmas music. Let the holidays begin....

It was well earned, in spite of the whole year being a challenge, Thanksgiving was just the beginning of a new year. Blessings abound for you Brin!

Oh, how wonderful! 2009 hasn't been one of my best, either, but I'm finding if I try to keep things in perspective and spend time on the things that really matter, the other stuff fades into the background. Merry Christmas!!!

Such a lovely corner to snuggle, sip cocoa and dream in. The sofa is gorgeous.

That is wonderful news.

We get to know people we have never met and then pray for them. You are one of those I pray for. :)

Many times, the least expectations bring the greatest joy.
