Thankful on Thursday

So thankful for this beautiful season we are enjoying! I am busy, busy, busy at work, with volunteer work, crafting and gearing up for the holidays. I just love this time of year... so the busier the better! We've got a jump-start on shopping for Christmas, but still have a ways to go... I just love being creative with gifts and making sure they are just right for every person on our list. It takes me a while to get there... but in due time, it all gets done. :)  I have some pretty special gifts picked out for a few family members and friends and I can't wait to see them open them up! I think that's my favorite part of the holidays.  We are so thankful that we are able to give gifts to those we love - and have loved ones around us.  I continue to count my blessings every day for our health and family. We're very blessed!

In other matters... I'm off to Richmond to help with some sorority volunteer work and I am SO excited! I don't get to make chapter visits very often - it's hard to get off work, give up weekends, and find the time to make a visit just for fun anymore. So tonight should be fun! We're leading an officer transition, which I love... a fresh new start... the possibilities are endless!

I'm also so very thankful to have 3 thanksgiving dinners on the books for this year, the first of which is with my hubs work tomorrow for lunch. He's frying up some yummy birds in the deep fryer - I can't wait to enjoy a yummy meal with his co-workers! They really are like a second family for us, and we're so very lucky to have them in town.  Next week, we have my work turkey day on Tuesday and the real deal on Thursday afternoon. We're heading over to some very good friends of ours here in town - the leftover youngsters that don't travel home for the holidays.... and those staying to work on Thanksgiving Day 5K, the Gobble Wobble! This is the second year we have done it - last year we had over 300 runners in the first year!  I'm happy to say that we have almost 300 already signed up as of today.... hoping for another 100 on the day of! So glad we will be here to see the celebration this year!!

Lots of randomness today, but I just wanted to count my blessings and remember the reason for the season!

xo, tracy
