” Can’t believe Thanksgiving is in two days!”, is what I am hearing from a lot of people, and it did come upon us very quickly. Even so, it is one of our great holidays, not only because we can eat and eat and not feel (too) guilty, but also because we can take an entire day to give thanks for all the blessings in our lives. As a nation right now we are going through difficult times, but nonetheless there are many things to be grateful for. Especially, for all the men and women in our military that are away from their families to protect our way of life. Also, for living in a country where we are able to be who we are, and voice our opinions.
As a mother of four, I am thankful for my wonderful children and that they are healthy beautiful kids who have made, and hopefully continue to make good choices for their lives. They were an awesome gift from God that I can never imagine not having in my life. They grew up in what seems to have been a blink of an eye, but they will all always be my babies. I told my youngest he could not get older than 3- years- old, but he said,” Mommy but I want to grow up.” God bless all of them.
I am also thankful for my wonderful husband, and the wonderful life we have together. He is definitely my soul mate. After almost twenty years of marriage, we still laugh together and want to spend time together like we did when we met in high school. That, is a blessing to be very thankful for.
I also very thankful for all our family and friends, who make our lives more lively and joyful.They are always there in times of need, and always there to inspire us.
So, on this Thanksgiving holiday, while preparing a turkey feast and thinking about “what time will I get up to shop for Black Friday deals”, don’t forget to say I love you to the ones you love, and be thankful for family and friends. Help the ones that are less fortunate than we are, and share our blessings with others.
From my family to yours, have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
