Since it's the Thanksgiving holiday in the states, we're doing our part as 'Mericans to celebrate over here, too. Our poulet rôti (rotisserie chicken) from my favorite stall at the market smells delicious and is ready as a stand-in for the traditional turkey. Side dishes are prepped. Glasses are filled and the fire is crackling.
We'll be going around the table saying reasons why we are thankful. They are numerous. We have amazing friends and family. We have our health. We are surrounded by love. We have much and I am thankful that we have the ability to appreciate all that we have instead of focusing the opposite. It's a skill that we hone here at the hibou+heron household and I am so glad that we do. It makes our existence so much richer. I am thankful for a wonderful husband. I am grateful for our beautiful, little boy and the wonder and joy he's brought into our lives.
I'm thankful that you read what I write and that it's enough to keep you coming back again. Your support and readership mean so much. Thank you for that.
Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving or, if you don't observe the holiday, just a really great Thursday!
