getting sentimental in my old age...

Was it just me or did the Thanksgiving holiday seem so much more meaningful this year?

Don't get me wrong, I am always thankful for the long weekend, opportunity to reconnect with relatives/ loved ones , long weekend, eat fantabulous food until I pass out and long weekend. But for whatever reason, this year, I found myself really reflecting on all the wonderful people in my life and being humbled by all the blessings that I;ve received over the past year.

And unlike the crazy folks in out in Long Island who trampled a man to death trying to get to the marked down 50' flat screen TV, it seemed like the vibe of most folks are happy to just have the basics-family, health and a freaking job. I must say, it's been fun times...

I can't wait to see what the New Year brings (read: holding my breath until January 20th).

  1. It was a good Thanksgiving this year. No drama! I also think it had a lot to do with the history that's been made and the hope of tomorrow.
