Happy Givethanksing To You
I make no bones about it. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of all. Better than Christmas, birthdays, Halloween, New Year’s, Valentine’s Day. It’s the one time I am especially grateful for all of the blessings in my life. And my list is long.
Thanksgiving is a special day to appreciate life with the extra bonus of fantastic food. I truly enjoy turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, and all kinds of side dishes using family recipes passed down through the generations. And then there’s the pumpkin pie with (not too much) whipped cream. Ummm. Pumpkin pie.
Once again, my family and I have been invited to spend the holiday with friends I’ve known for 30 years. Before dinner, we go around the room and say out loud what we are thankful for. It’s a beautiful moment that I look forward to every year. Good friends, good food, football, music, lots of laughter, it’s all there on Thanksgiving Day.
When it gets to be my turn to speak, I never forget to mention how thankful I am for all of the music in my life and for all of the people, both young and grown up, who sing along. Be it at school, at a library, in the park, at a Farmers Market, or a concert somewhere, I thank you all for coming out and saying hello. Thank you for supporting my music all year long. May you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving. And an extra piece of pumpkin pie for me…
Thanks (that’s one)
Thanks (that’s two)
Thanks (that’s three)
Thanks (that’s four)
