Somewhere Between Thanksgiving And Christmas

Thanksgiving day dinner is over and now anticipation for Christmas has begun.  I hope you had a lovely day yesterday and you were blessed to spend it with those that you love.  Our day with each other centered around preparing good food along with good conversation.  This year we ate dinner early in the afternoon and the rest of the day we simply relaxed, watched movies, ate and drank.  It was overcast, cold and windy outside.  The kind of day to cozy up around a blazing fire.  It was the perfect day!   
I have so much to thank God for...a wonderful family, friendships, a roof over our heads, good food, my continuous journey for a stronger faith, hope and love.  
While the hustle and bustle of this Christmas season has officially begun....let me always be aware that the decorating, baking, entertaining and gift giving is all done in anticipation for the birth of Our Savior Jesus Christ.  Wishing you joy and peace in your preparations for this Christmas Season.  ~amy

It sounds like you had a very lovely Thanksgiving, Amy! We did too - we drove up to Denver and got together with family. Dinner was at my brother & sister-in-law's and we all had the best time! :)
Wishing you a lovely week,
Zuzu
