Thanksgiving has many meanings to many different people. Maybe it is about being out of school for a long weekend, eating a great dinner, the start to the Christmas holiday season, or spending time with family.
Like the Pilgrims who celebrated their successful crops throughout the year, most people use the day to reflect on all that they are thankful for. I love that it gives us a chance to come together for no other reason but to share food, stories, love and appreciation. although it is a wonderful thing to do, it is only 1 day of 365 throughout the year. I would like to use this one day to kick off my Thanksgiving year and start a season of Thanks-Living!
I want to remind my children throughout the year how special they are to me. I want my husband to remember all he does each day of the year for our family. I want to make sure I continually remind my parents and extended family how much they have influenced my life and the lives of my children. My friends, neighbors, co-workers, and clients should be appreciated throughout the year as well.
While driving down the street I sometimes yell out in the car “I LOVE MY FAMILY”, I send my husband an email or text that says “THINKING OF YOU”, take a minute to call a friend and say “HI”, or bake a neighbor some cookies. I like to call my friends and family with a quick “JUST WANTED TO SAY HI” phone call to let them know I care.
I want to wish all of you a HAPPY THANKSGIVING YEAR and……
365 days of THANKS-LIVING!
My daughter Hailey, me, husband Ernie, daughter Elyssa (and baby in her tummy), her husband Nick, and son Hunter
SO THANKFUL FOR MY AMAZING FAMILY, PARENTS, AND EXTENDED FAMILY
Make this 1 of 365 days of Thanksgiving
That’s one happy family; you must be doing something right!
We love you very much Mom. You are the glue that holds us all together.
Happy Thanksgiving (very belated), lady. 🙂 Your family is beautiful!
