Thankful- Finding the Spirit of the Holidays


This year has been as surreal as it can get.  With the challenges and hardships, we have all faced it is hard finding reasons to be thankful this Thanksgiving.  Not one of us is unaffected by the goings-on with this pandemic and the fear has taken over our thankful hearts.  Well... I'm taking mine back.

This year I am thankful for many things and it took me some time to realize that I needed to stop complaining about what I can't or don't have and give thanks for what I do.  I have been blessed with many things in my life, but the most important is my family.



I am thankful for my husband. He is the man that supports me, stands up for me, and protects my heart from pain.  His love for me is unconditional and so earnest.  I am thankful that our "Broken Roads" led us to each other.

I am thankful for my son.  The person who taught me to love with all that I am.  E is the quintessential mama's boy and I would want it no other way.  No time and distance will break the bond we have.

I am thankful for my daughter.  Her bright spirit is unlike anything I have ever seen.  She has brains and beauty and isn't afraid to use either one of them.  

I am thankful for co-workers that are like my family.  These wonderful women have boosted my spirits when I have been sad, made me laugh until I cried, and support me through all my professional dealings as well as my personal ones.  

I am thankful for my family.  Each member of my family has taught me a lesson in which shaped me into who I am today.

Lastly, I am thankful for all of you reading this post.  You are the reason I am able to sit here and offer advice, recipes, or just talk about life.  We may be strangers, but we are a community of moms that need mommy guidance and acceptance.  I have found that here and I hope in some way you have too.
