Last day of vacation. It was just the opposite of madness and mayhem.
I didn’t feel great thanksgiving morning due to hanging out with the boys and shots of jack the night before but it wasn’t anything that couldn’t be fixed. the ride home from the naughty might have been the best part. turkey day was spent with good friends, eating, watching football (Geaux Saints), making each other laugh and trying to see how many times each person could say “I’m Thankful” which rendered hilarious comedy.
my niece learned the phrase “retail therapy” when the ladies took her thrift store shopping and later had an adult birthday party for this five year old going on sixteen. She is so sugar and spice that’s for sure.
my man went duck hunting and shot a goose (we had it for dinner last night. amazing and delicious). my nephew shot a gun for the first time, something I have yet to accomplish.
Yesterday I made it out to the ski hill and found sweetness. It’s been a truly relaxing vacation which was well warranted and appreciated.
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace …for today, and creates a vision for… tomorrow.”
