Can it be?! Thanksgiving is already upon us…I am thrilled for more reasons than just turkey, although that is a good reason all by itself:) I get to be with family, and when I say that I mean family I don’t get to see everyday. Most of my relatives live in Texas and so the holidays mean travel and visiting loved ones. I will get to see my son that now lives in Arkansas, my son who is away at college and my parents…as well as many others…. Thanksgiving truly is a time of Thanks for me and giving of love to my dear ones. It will go by way to fast…it will be fast and furious but sweet and splendid as well. Another reason I love Thanksgiving….well it means that Christmas is soon behind…and I will get to see many loved ones all over again..not as many but at least all my sons will be in town and for this I am thankful. I love the holidays and to me Thanksgiving and Christmas are all part of the same thing…remembering how blessed we are and to keep that in the forefront. I’m looking forward to sharing this special time with those I love most in this world and I will take the time to let them know how thankful I am to have them in my life. We should all slow down a bit and remember that life is short and to tell those we care about how we feel. With the negativity that has been spewing all over the media lately with the recent election we need to remember we still live in a great country with freedoms to voice our opinions. Lets take this time to focus on the good and appreciate what we do have instead of what we don’t and give thanks for the opportunities and the loved ones in our lives. Reflect on the blessings and continue to pray for our future and embrace the moment ….Just….Be Thankful.
