Thanksgiving Day gives us the opportunity to pause and reflect upon our many blessings. It is a day for family, feasts, football, and fun. And, let us not forget the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

My day will be spent with my hubby, my little guy, and my parents. My airman son will be in Alaska. Sure, I’m disappointed he will not be with us for this day; however, he will be home in about three weeks.  I’m grateful he is safe, and the guys at his firehouse will prepare a feast for all of them to enjoy. Later today, we’ll skype with him.  Technology, at times,  can definitely be a blessing.

My Thanksgiving dinner will consist of fried turkey, stuffing, sweet potato casserole, green beans and mushrooms, rolls, cranberry sauce, and pecan pie. The best part of which I am eternally grateful…I don’t have to cook. I’m blessed that my mother and hubby will cook the dinner, and my mother-in-law baked the pie. Yum!

My dear friends, enjoy your day in whatever way you choose to spend it. Consider extending your gratitude attitude beyond today. Personally, I try to write on a daily basis at least  five things/events/people I’m grateful for in my gratitude journal. It helps me to focus on my blessings. Focusing on my blessings makes me a happier person.

Happy Thanksgiving!
