Thanksgiving Day laugh

So, yesterday was a big holiday. A day to give thanks and ponder on the wonderful things of life. Right? Well I started off the day going for my normal jog with my husband and friend and her husband. The men went on ahead of us in the car to the trail head and to begin their walk. My friend and I followed by jogging to the trail to catch up with them. A couple of miles into the jog a chunk of cement jumped up and tripped me. Yup! Down I went. I am a little scratched up and bruised but I finished my jog anyway. After all I had razzleberry pie to look forward to later on that afternoon. After the jog I went home and showered, dressed (no one would want to see me naked), and began cooking. I threw a razzleberry pie into the oven. After a while I went down to the church to welcome guests for dinner and fun. A few hours after I was at the church I remembered I had a pie in the oven! Oops. My razzleberry pie was burned. I was so disappointed. I may have to cook another one another day this weekend. I still got stuffed on Thanksgiving Day. It was a great dinner and I thank all the family who helped cook and clean up. I thought the kitchen looked better than when we arrived as we were exiting the building.
Last night we poured over the ads to see if anything was worth getting up early to go buy. I decided to sleep in a little bit. A little bit was 7:30. I washed my face, threw on sweats, combed my hair, brushed my teeth and took off. I got most of my Christmas shopping done! Now for the wrapping and decorating of the house. It has been a busy weekend. My only regret is that I feel like I didn't spend enough time thinking and noticing things I am grateful for and should be grateful for. Luckily, I can do this every day of my life! So, today I am grateful for repentance and each day is a new one to start fresh with a new unwritten page.

Sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving weekend.
I got nothing accomplished. No gifts purchased...nothing. I'm lame. I want to be like you.
