Spread the love

Today on Thanksgiving, I have so much to be thankful for.  I am thankful for traditions and for family.  I am thankful that I get to celebrate Thanksgiving with both sides of my family; the Dama’s and the Jaskolski’s.  I am thankful for all of my extended family; aunts, uncles, cousins…

I am thankful for the delicious food that fills my tummy.  Bounzadotes (sp?), Stuffing, Gnocchi and Italian Sausage, Turkey, Stuffed Mushrooms, Lemon Bars, Broccoli Rice casserole, Kids Wine, and so much more. 
I am thankful for the annual burnt rolls.

I am thankful for gathering around after dinner and having an elaborate sing-a-long to Dominick the Donkey.   I am thankful that when everyone is off key, it doesn’t matter because we are all together, singing, laughing, and having a blast.

I am thankful for when both my Dad and my Father-In-Law say Grace before we eat to give thanks and reflect on the past year.

I am thankful for the precious time with loved ones.  I am thankful for the reflection and hope that each Thanksgiving brings.

Happy Turkey Day to all! Thank you for being a part of my life.
