There are so many things we all should be thankful for. Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday because we stop to reflect and express gratitude for what we have, while spending time with family and friends. I have a strong bond with my big brother and on this day we relax at his home with his family.
Thanksgiving seems to get lost in the “preparation” for Christmas though. (Why do people decorate for Christmas before Thanksgiving anyway?)
A few things I’m thankful for:
- My husband
- Healthy and happy children
- Support from family and friends
- Freedom to choose
- A 2nd chance
It is important to remember we reach out everyday to others as well who don’t have much; they are valuable too.
