I am so excited that Thanksgiving is finally here!
I grew up in a family that rather than getting more family time during "family-oriented" holidays (Christmas, Easter, etc.), we got significantly less family time due to obligations outside the home. Yet, since I was a child, Thanksgiving Day was the one holiday I could count on for us all to be together, focused on each other, enjoying food, football and family fun! Each year I could not wait for Thanksgiving time and I still look forward to it with excitement!
My brothers and I are adults now and we all have children and families of our own. In this season of our lives, I am thoroughly enjoying creating our young family's memories and traditions. My prayer during this time of year is that our children will look forward to this holiday with anticipation because it is a time committed to family togetherness, but more importantly, a time to consider all of God's blessings in our lives and give thanks to Him.
I can't believe it has officially been a month since I have last posted! My intentions have been good, but my schedule has not cooperated! Many of you know I am big on "resolutions" throughout the year rather than just on January my first Thanksgiving Resolution is to get back to blogging!
God bless your families this Thanksgiving! Be sure to take time to reflect on the "good things" in your life and if those "things" happen to be people God has blessed you with, be sure to let them know you are thankful for them!!!
