I hope you guys all had a great Thanksgiving weekend!
Mine was filled with great food, music, and company.
Last Tuesday I decided to write down 50 things I was thankful for this year to follow what I wrote last week (click here to read) . The first 20 were easy to list but I had to really think about the last 30. It was a great experience because it made me appreciate things that I usually take for granted. For example, as I was writing my list I was reminded of how lucky I was to be able to speak, hear, touch, see, run, walk, and many more. Those things seem so simple and that's why it's easily ignored. It was a great time to truly reflect and appreciate even the little things that God has given me which all sums up to great things.
Next, I called a few of my friends I haven't talked to in a while and chatted for a few hours. It was nice catching up and talking about old times. Also, I wrote a thank you note to everyone in my family to show love and appreciation. They thought it was a bit silly at first but I saw the smiles on their faces after they read the notes. It's amazing how a simple thank you note can bring giggles and smiles to someone's face which is irreplaceable.
Here are some pictures of few of my family members from Thanksgiving Day:
I hope you guys had a great vacation. Now, it's time to get ready for Christmas!!
Christmas is my favorite time of the year!
