Should you do your push ups today?
Yes! Time to exercise and burn off all those Thanksgiving calories! And finish Friday strong, renewed in energy. But, oh, how wonderful to have Thanksgiving.... a Thursday at the end of November where your family and friends stop the daily grind to gather and feast and remember our blessings...it is as good as it gets! My favorite holiday. I remember the first couple times I had Thanksgiving here...all the useless fuss and worry! Like I would even clean my closets...why? And the constant obsession with things like organizing the shoes into neat piles, vacuming the crumbs WHILE the person was actually making them ... Those days are long gone...Now that I am a wise 50 I actually relax and enjoy the holidays! Maybe the brilliant college kids are on to something when you say, "What did you do?" and their elaborate response full of information is, "Just chilled."...Maybe they knew something we adults never bothered to even consider... .like just chill....experience the company, enjoy the day, enjoy the people and enjoy the food! Of course we have to pack the dishwasher and unpack the dishwasher 5 times during the day and clean up SOME of the crumbs, but for the most part we have learned to just be. It is a beautiful thing. I am happy to be getting closer to understanding Mary and leaving Martha behind.....
