It’s so easy to look at life and see the flaws and downsides and failures and disappointments. But today isn’t about that. Today is about the positive. The good stuff. The successes and the blessings. Family, friends, health, love. Celebrating the things in life that you are most thankful for. This year I have SO MUCH to celebrate. SO MUCH to be thankful for.
I didn’t grow up celebrating Thanksgiving, but it’s become a favorite holiday tradition through the years. Being an immigrant college student during Thanksgiving is no fun, so I send special love to the students having turkey with fellow students you don’t know so well, or your Resident Assistant. I was once where you are.
Today my husband and I are making a feast at home, expecting friends over for food and fun, and toasting to the wonderful events over the past year. This weekend we’re going shopping and partying with old friends from high school and college who have grown up with us. So much to be thankful for.
I love this song by William Devaughn. It says everything I’m trying to say about today.
Even though I’m still not driving a great big Cadillac, I’m very thankful. For my husband and my family and my friends both new and old. For this wonderful career I’ve created for myself. And I am especially thankful for you. Thank you for reading my blog and supporting what I do in all the ways that you do. I am so thankful for you.
Love and happiness to everyone reading this, I hope you have a happy Thanksgiving!
