Be Thankful

Just  few things to reflect on this Thanksgiving...

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?

I don't know if you are hosting dinner or going to someone's house.. Trust me I know it can get crazy with kids in tow, trying to clean your house, run to the store for 10 things you forgot and trying to make it nice for others.. we forget to stop and enjoy the day.. I do this and I was doing this, until today. I am choosing to slow down, trust I will get done what needs to get done and just be happy.  I want my kids to remember fun Holidays, not the ones where they say "oh, yea, my mom was a complete nut during the holidays :)"  So I am slowing down and having fun too.

I want to wish all who read my little blog, a very Happy Thanksgiving.  If you know of someone spending it alone, invite them over, or make a plate of food for a neighbor that is alone and take it over to them.  Start a new tradition, go around your table and have everyone say 3 things they are Thankful for.. We have done this for a few years and it is my favorite time of the day.
 I hope everyone has a wonderful day, great food and makes some fun memories to look back on.
Happy Thanksgiving to All!
