Sunny Day to All,
Since we decided to stay home this year, I chose to host Thanksgiving dinner at the house. With my surgery coming up, I knew that I had to lay low for Christmas. Why not turn up for thanksgiving? A few great friends decided to join and we made some great memories together. I pulled my dinnerware, silverware, glassware and linen out for this event. Oh, how I enjoyed using all my goodies!
I had 18 RSVP's and was thrilled to set up the tables for that many guests. I spent the entire day cooking and prepping. I had a few of my sisters visiting from out of town. They both helped tremendously with the preparation. We had a blast in the kitchen that Thursday.
Allow me to share some of the pictures with you guys.
I usually don't post about gatherings but Thanksgiving meant a lot to me this year. I felt like this was going to be the last time I smiled in 2019. I was scared... No, I was terrified. With this surgery coming up, I was looking for signs everywhere. Signs making me feel like everything was going to be ok. Signs making me feel like we were not doing this for anything. Signs making me feel like our many years together will be compensated somehow one day. Signs making me feel like we were not a joke. Because I knew that we weren't. I knew that we were blessed somehow and that we had a purpose in this world. I had hope! I just needed a confirmation from God that day.
After dinner, we surprised my sister with a cake for her birthday and she was extremely happy. At this point, everything was going well. After several glasses of wine, I was having a blast with family and friends. Just when I thought the night was coming to an end, my dear nephew that I adore, proposed to his beautiful High school sweetheart in my blessed home. I was extremely shocked as I was not expecting this. I didn't know that he was even dating so this engagement was a total surprise. Both hubby and I were not aware of this proposal at all. After being out of words for a few minutes, I realized that this was the sign that I have been asking for all along. The one that was meant to remind me that my home was indeed blessed and that everything was going to be ok.
This engagement refurbished my hope.That day, I thanked God for this blessing and felt much better about this surgery coming up. I was hopeful maybe more than before.
This is how I remember this day....
