I decided to wait until it settled down a bit so this one didn’t get lost in the shuffle. LOL. 😜 We enjoyed our very quiet and low key Thanksgiving this year, the first year with just the 2 of us.

I sat on the bench and listened to the sounds of nature and the quiet. I watched the deer and the bunnies foraging across the property. I took a deep breath and reflected on my life.
