A day where I pack up my family of four and we head across town to my parents house to eat turkey and all the fixings.
A day where we are supposed to pause and give thanks for the things in our lives. I think it becomes easy to look at all the negative around us and forget all of the things that we are surrounded by that we have to be thankful for. So, today, I have decided to write a list – and although it is FAR from complete, it serves as a reminder to me, that even in the shit show that sometimes my life feels like…I’m pretty damn lucky. In no particular order:
- a job I enjoy
- working vehicles
- a warm house
- clean clothes to wear
- delicious food to eat
- my boyfriend/partner
- my amazing therapist
- this blog and anyone who reads it
This is just a short little list, but too often it’s easy to forget. I am lucky. I am thankful. I hope that you are all able to give thanks…even for the little things.
