A belated Happy Thanksgiving

With all of the prep for the show and sales, I have not had the energy to sit and post.
I hope you all had a wonderful day yesterday. What I like most about Thanksgiving is that it is a rather low-key holiday. Yes, there is all of the food prep and eating, and dessert, but all in all, it is a more relaxed holiday that most.
Even when we were young and traveled over 300 miles to our grandmother's house (Nana), the actual day was relaxed. That is because in our family, everyone has always helped in the preparations. And with the Macy's parade on the TV, and then football of every shape and form, you just get to sit and relax and let the food digest. That is, after the dishes are cleared and washed.
Thank you to all in the family that contributed yesterday, whether it was a phone call from afar or helping with the gathering here.
I am thankful for my health, my family, and my network of friends. With that, I can continue to create, which makes me feel fulfilled. There is an empty space in me when I cannot express my creativity in the ways I want to.
I am grateful to those who love me and encourage me to create and grow. Your love and support is what keeps me going.
Oh, I also had a very nice Birthday yesterday as well.
