My Favorite Day

The day before Thanksgiving became just that sometime around junior high for a very simple reason - no alarm clock for the next 4 days! There were other, even longer school breaks in the year but Thanksgiving was the first long break after summer making it so much more anticipated and appreciated.

Over the years I've certainly come to enjoy other days and long ago gave up sleeping long past the alarm but on this particular day I'm a teenager again. The feeling came full circle at dinner last night when my grown son, working his first full time job, declared his excited intention to "sleep late on Thursday and Friday and Saturday and Sunday." Some things never change.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Celebrate all for which we are truly blessed, including a good night's sleep.
