I have so much to be thankful for. The small blessings are so often overlooked because of the quotidian stress and hustle. That is why I love Thanksgiving. The focus is on being grateful and family. Um, and food. You know I love food.
This Thanksgiving I am particularly thankful for my health, my husband’s health, and my family’s health.
I am thankful that I never go hungry.
I am thankful for family: that I have one who loves me unconditionally; that they are supportive and loving; and that they help me each in his or her own way.
I am thankful to live in a country where free speech, freedom of assembly and freedom of the press are taken for granted. I hope that others in this tumultuous time remember and recognize that freedom.
I am thankful for the men and women who fight to protect these freedoms for us every day both at home and abroad.
I am thankful for the American Dream. My family and my husband are living proof that the American Dream lives on.
I believe in this Country’s capability for change. We should never stop improving ourselves, our laws and our values. United we stand.
I am thankful that I, as a woman, am free to do anything a man can do without question or fear of punishment. I am not oppressed or repressed as a woman and for that I am profoundly grateful.
And on the lighter side…
I am thankful for my cat, Mini, because she is adorably quirky and like the feline version of me. I’m glad she found her way into my life.
I am thankful for this little piece of the Internet that I call my own.
God bless you and your family on this day, and don’t forget to take a few moments to remember what you are thankful for.
Oh my gosh! I almost forgot…
I’m thankful for CUPCAKES!
And pie. Pumpkin pie to be precise today.
