We all held hands and bowed our heads. Gooze blessed the food and gave thanks to God for bringing us together. He always says the blessing before we eat and somehow every year I laugh after we say Amen. There is a sense of calmness when he talks, it makes you feel like everything is perfect, and he always lets us all know how lucky we are to have such an amazing family. So this is another Thanksgiving, another lazy Thursday filled with lounging around, laughing, and of course stuffing our faces with turkey, sweet potatoes, and broccoli casserole. So thank you little pilgrims, and thank you to my amazing family for being so..well, amazing.
Last night I got a chance to see a lot of friends from high school and even middle school. Each year the night before Thanksgiving is always interesting. Everyone packs into the same place and it seems like deja vu. It's always a blast getting to kick it with my hometown friends. I didn't get a chance to run the turkey trot this morning, but I did go for a little run by myself around the neighborhood.
Goodnight and Happy Thanksgiving to all!
This is the turkey that my incredible mom made out of apples, cheese, grapes, and more.
