Thanksgiving will be here before we know it and there are many, many things to do. In order for our homes to be stuffed with people and our bellies to be stuffed with way more food than one person should consume in a day we have got to start shopping and cleaning. There is something both fun and annoying about being in a grocery store around Thanksgiving. On one hand all the people bustling around definitely puts me in the holiday spirit, but the seemingly endless lines and trouble locating exactly what I went in there for make me feel a little less “thankful”.
Truly though, we have so many things to be thankful for. I remind myself every once in awhile not to worry about the things that I do not have or the things I am not doing and to just be thankful for what I do have and the things I do get to do. I wouldn’t say I am ever intentionally ungrateful, but sometimes I get so caught up in the day to day of things that I forget to really take a moment and appreciate my sweet family, my home, my community and so on.
So, this Thanksgiving while you are with your loved ones enjoying a special feast of Turkey and other family favorites take a moment to look around and be thankful for the people that are there (whether or not you can only tolerate them for an hour at a time doesn’t matter – they are family and they are there), the good food you are enjoying (with the exception of the fat-free green bean casserole that I avoid like the plague – I mean really – nothing should be fat-free on Thanksgiving!) and all the blessings that have come your way this year.
