With Thanksgiving tomorrow, I wanted to drop a purely personal blog post today and talk about what I am thankful for not just tomorrow, but everyday.
On holidays I like to take time to reflect on the things that are important to me. When I think about my life, I realize how many amazing people have helped me become the person I am and hope to be. Without these people I would be floundering, instead they bring me up.
I am thankful for the wonderful guidance, love and support my family gives me. Through them I learned what good relationships are, how to cook a great meal, and how to be a family.
Speaking of good relationships, I am thankful for my wonderful husband. He is always there for me. You wouldn’t be reading this blog without his encouragement, gentle ribbing (“So how is that blog you’ve been talking about starting?” “So what are you doing with that domain name that you purchased?”), and good listening skills.
Whether we are traveling or staying home for the holidays we always have a wonderful time with our families. We are going on our third year of holiday traffic and chaos. We can proudly say we have survived 95, 81, and the Ohio and Pennsylvania Turnpikes the day before Thanksgiving/Christmas and the day(s) after!
Together with our dog Corona (who probably should have been named Mayhem) the three of us make a pretty good team.
What would a Thanksgiving day post be without mentioning the amazing friends in my life? I wouldn’t even know where to start on this one. I am thankful for the the close friends I have in my life. They are there to celebrate the good times, complain about the bad times and set me straight when I am just plain whiny.
They say you can never go home again but friends make it easier.
Finally, what would Thanksgiving be without a shout-out to the man upstairs? Thank You God!
Did you notice I haven’t mentioned anything about work ? about career? It’s not that I’m not thankful for any of that (trust me I am) but really none of that matters without the love of friends or family.
I hope your Thanksgiving Day is spent surrounded by friends and family. Take a break from your every day worries and enjoy the quiet chaos of the holidays.
