We’re having a quiet holiday here at Chez R. We went out yesterday and bought a new Christmas tree, all pre-lit with the option of clear or colored lights at the flip of a switch. We also got strings of colored lights for the outside. This morning, I spent an hour or so decorating the tree while Mr. R. risked life and limb hanging lights on the front of the house. That’s right, we’re getting all festive up in here.
Dinner will be later in the afternoon, just the two of us. My sons are out in the mid-west living their own lives. Matter of fact, my Airman daughter-in-law is deployed this holiday, so if you think about it, maybe shoot up a little prayer for her safety and a swift return.
We have lots to be thankful for, Mr. R. and I. First of all, we have each other. We’re reasonably healthy, we have enough, and we’re realizing we’re at a point in our lives where we have options. In the new year, we’re planning on exploring a few of those possibilities, and we’ll be sharing with you along the way.
I’m also eternally grateful for your friendship and companionship throughout the year. While the world seems to have lost its mind, I’ve met the nicest, kindest, funniest, smartest, strongest folks right here on WordPress, and I want you to know that I appreciate you all.
Have a very Happy Thanksgiving! ❤
