I'm really enjoying all of the well-wishes on Facebook today in celebration of Thanksgiving. It's heart warming to read the messages of the various forms of gratitude that friends and family are expressing.
I'm very thankful that both of our kids have places to go today to enjoy family and a wonderful meal together. Jack and I debated the pros and cons of making the trek with the potential freezing on roads we were to travel. After much deliberation, we decided to stay home. We will prepare a mini version of a Thanksgiving feast and finish our Christmas decorating.
There is so much to be thankful for and yet many times I know that I try to cram it all into this one day, but it's not all about one day. It's how we express our gratitude on a daily basis that counts in the big picture. I'm going to try harder from this day forward to show gratitude each day. Thanksgiving is like the kick start. It's like the beginning of a marathon and the gun going off to signify the start of the race. It's making sure that those I love and care about know it, it's taking the time and effort to give all that I have to my job, it's being thankful each day for my health, etc.
Today is the beginning of something incredibly special. I wish you much love, health, and happiness today and everyday! Happy Thanksgiving!
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
