I have so much to be thankful for. My life is fuller, better and happier than it has ever been.
I hope that this day is filled with blessings for you and your loved ones.
Happy Thanksgiving, all!
“Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity… it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” ―Melody Beattie
I had a harder time creating this post than I thought that I would. I have had an incredible year and have a ton of things to be thankful for. When there are so many that have so little, it’s not easy to write about what you have. I think that the quote above encompasses much of what I’m feeling.
On this special day, I wish you the joy and love of your family. I wish you a warm and peaceful place to lay your head tonight. Most of all, I wish you the simple gift of gratitude. It’s a gift that transforms lives.
Happy Thanksgiving, all.
Thank you for joining me on this journey! Penny ❤
Does anyone else feel as though they are being pressured with the approaching Holiday Season? Yesterday on the radio, someone said that Thanksgiving was just a little over 2 weeks away. I felt a surge of panic inside me!
How the hell did this happen? 🙂
I’m the type of person that will Christmas shop all year long. If I think that something might make a good gift for a loved one, I will often purchase whatever it is and stash it away for that Birthday or other life event that comes along.
So I went into my Stash to take inventory and I’ve done pretty well this year. That made me breathe a little sigh of relief!
The holidays put SO much pressure on us! I don’t care what you say, it’s still pressure. There’s the pressure to buy, spend and consume. There is the pressure to cook, gorge and indulge. You’re pressured to decorate. “You mean, you don’t put up a Christmas Tree?” Then there is the pressure to socialize or to host the party or gathering. So there seems to be no escaping the pressure.
So as the insanity begins this season, remember to take a moment and breath. Say a little prayer and remember what you are thankful for. Let’s also remember why we celebrate and what the true meaning of the celebration is all about.
Stay Strong my friends. 🙂
