I love Thanksgiving. It’s all about the food and companionship, rather than glitz and gift-giving. Normally we do a group dinner with neighbors and friends, but this year we opted to spend the holiday by ourselves. We’re having dinner at a really nice seafood restaurant, here on the island. No turkey for Martin today. I’m going for surf-and-turf. Hey, it’s a Florida thing ….
I woke up at 1:30 this morning, wide awake. So I slipped into my boxers, and then I spent two hours at the keyboard doing edits on my new book. I know that sounds weird, but it always works for me. After I went back to bed I slept until ten AM, so I got a late start on the day, but it’s a holiday, so what does it matter?
Oh, about Thanksgiving ….
Today is a day we should count our blessings. Yeah, bad stuff happens in life. We lose a job or a boyfriend or a family member, and we tend to think life isn’t worth living anymore. It’s then we need to realize how many good things life has to offer, and how many wonderful gifts life gives us: health, friendships, and simple things like a sunset or a good meal.
Happt Thanksgiving, everyone.
