It’s the week of Thanksgiving! My favorite holiday of the year.
I love all the traditional Thanksgiving foods (yes please give me all of the stuffing, turkey and pie). The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, the football games, and of course most of all the family time and the relaxed vibe that comes with this holiday.
There are no expectations to meet, no crazy running around – just time to hang out and be together.
It’s also the time when we all really take a moment to focus on one my absolute favorite things (and I’m guessing one of yours too) – giving thanks.
Up until a few years ago, gratitude was not part of my daily vocabulary.
Now some version of thank you crosses my mind, and my lips, several times throughout the day. It’s not that I wasn’t thankful before, it was just that I didn’t pay attention to all of the things I had to be thankful for.
