Celebrate what you might ask?
Lots of things really! But mostly that We’re Awesome! The Runner and I are both 100%, certified, Awesome or Amazeballs as the kids today would say. So awesome and amazing that I randomly bought Bug Tails and Steak for dinner tonight– I’ve never cooked a Bug Tail in my life so if I get it wrong by tomorrow we might have food poisoning and feel decidedly less awesome but let’s roll the dice…..
But aside from that, we have a lot to be thankful for- yes, Thanksgiving is coming up, and yes, it is the time of the year that you’re meant to reflect and Be Thankful for all the little and big things in your life and today I can say that I definitely am very thankful.
When I was little, one of my favourite songs to listen to with my mother was, “Be Thankful for What You’ve Got” by William DeVaughn. If you haven’t heard it, it’s a fine piece of 1970s song writing…. Literally, I think to fully understand the lyrics, you have to have seen Shaft in a cinema while combing your afro and wearing your best pair of bell bottoms. If you’ve never heard it, check it out here, but it’s kind of not the point…
The point is that I’m really Thankful this Thanksgiving season and I’m going to kick off celebrating my Thankfulness tonight with a lovely surf and turf meal for The Runner!
