I made pie! Of course.
I made a peach pie and a pumpkin pie but the crazy-stupid thing is that I FORGOT to add the secret ingredient to my pumpkin pie and it just really bothers me. I was so bummed that I couldn’t even find the will to make another!
So. Such an attitude is inappropriate – I must skew and twist my thoughts back to the reason for the season ponderings… Let’s do the alphabet!
A is for ATTITUDE because we do have the power of control on this powerful mental tool.
B is for BOUNTY. We have so much. So much, too much?
C is for COMPASSION. I need to grow this in my heart. I’ve got some but could use a bit more.
D is for DEAR HUSBAND. He’s the very bestest awesomest.
E is for ESTHER, my new baby puppy. She has won me over all the way.
F is for FUN. We can always try to have a more fun-filled approach to everything.
G is for gravy. DH is making today’s gravy with the turkey giblets. Mmmmmmm.
H is for HEALTH. Really, I pray all of you keep healthy throughout the coming year. (go away this start of a cold I feel; I said GO AWAY! ;) )
I is for IMAGINATION. I love to be creative and the power of this I word is astonishing, at times.
J is for JOY. Despite knowing a person named Joy that I tried to like but found it difficult, I still love this word.
K is for KINDNESS. I love seeing kindness in others and in myself. I need to practice this more.
L is for LOVE. “The greatest of these is love.”
M is for Mom. She and Dad are here to celebrate Thanksgiving and I’m grateful they are able and willing to make the trip.
N is for … Well, I couldn’t think of anything for N! what came to mind was napkins. Am I really thankful for napkins?! So I asked DH what word that stars with N is he grateful for and he says ‘Non-union work shops’.
O is for Oscar. Big brother to Esther. He’s still my baby.
P is for Parsley. I have bunches of bunches growing in my garden and it puts a smile on my face!
Q is for Anna Quindlen. I want to read more of her books.
R is for RESPECT. and the Blues Brothers for putting that song in their movie.
S is for Green SPINELL – a gem that my DH gave me for my 22nd wedding anniversary. He is such a sweetie!
T is for TRAINS. I hope to take a train to NYC to go to the Pinstripe Football Bowl! Maybe…
U is for UNDERSTANDING? Sure, let’s go for that.
V is for VERISIMILITUDE because I think it is the coolest word!
W is for WEALTH. Practicing the art of the power of positive thinking and Laws of Attraction here.
X is for xylaphone. Really, I guess I could be happy about XRAYs, too but I’m not really thankful for TSA etc…
Y is for YELLOW because it is a happy bright color.
Z is for ZEBRA. I’m thankful for zebras.
