Can you believe Thanksgiving comes this week?! So begins the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. And although it's easy to get lost in the menu planning, football watching, and sale shopping, starting today, I am going to begin thinking about Thanksgiving. I'm going to focus on giving thanks for the many blessings I have received. While it's nice to have a holiday totally dedicated to being thankful, there's no reason to wait until then to think about all the things in your life that you're grateful for. In fact, wouldn't it be nice to consciously work on giving thanks every day of the year?
As the official day of Thanksgiving approaches and we mentally, physically, and emotionally prepare ourselves for the grandest meal of the year, I'm going to be looking forward to Thanksgiving in a different way...for me, this year Thanksgiving is simply going to serve as a reminder that giving thanks is something that I should be doing every day, especially in a world where you can't take anything for granted.
Today I am thankful for my family. My sweet husband who would do anything to make me smile. My mom* who has always been my biggest fan & best friend. My dad who is always there for me. My in-laws who have made me feel like family since the day I met them. And most of all, the newest addition to my family, my sweet little Hudson who is the absolute best thing in my life. I have so much to be thankful for.
Happy Thanksgiving Week, everybody! What are you thankful for?
*speaking of my Mom....she's always on the lookout for cute things for me, and last year she surprised me with the fabulous necklace I'm wearing in today's pictures. She had it made especially for me. What an awesome mother I have, huh?
