I want to wish all of you a very happy Thanksgiving holiday. I hope you have plenty to be thankful for this year, no matter how good or bad things have been for you in 2012. I’ll share a few things I’m thankful for in this year full of small and big, fun and painful challenges:
– My kids: I’m grateful for their love, their determination, their brightness, their inquisitiveness and their creativity.
– My health: after a couple of health scares, I seem to be OK. Fingers crossed.
– My family and friends: I’m grateful to be surrounded with people who have nothing but love, help and support to offer me. I have formed close relationships with a few friends this past year and I feel so lucky and blessed to have met such wonderful women.
– The blogosphere: I’m grateful to have met so many interesting people I would never have had the opportunity to meet in person. I’ve also found lots of support in the blogosphere during my trying experiences and the launch of my new enterprise (my photography website) this year.
What are you thankful for this year?
And now, I invite you to have a little fun on your Thanksgiving day by making the yummiest turkey you’ll ever eat. The best part? You won’t have to cook it for hours! My son did this in his class last week and his brother and I helped a bit to finish it. All you need is a red apple, toothpicks, raisins, cranberries, marshmallows (1 big one, several little ones) and a gummy worm. If you’re looking for Thanksgiving craft activities to keep little kids entertained, this is a great one to try. I present you turkey art!
Happy Turkey Day!
