Ohhh the holidays! Aren’t they great? 🙂
It’s the eve of Thanksgiving and I’ve made it home. This is the 1st year in a long time since my Mom hasn’t worked during the holidays and it just increases my gratitude this year. I couldn’t remember the last time we actually cooked and celebrated in our own home. Other than her job, it was either an invitation to a church family’s home, or I was out-of-town.
In our home, we’re a working family. So often times everyone’s everywhere, doing everything. However, as I get older and ascend further into my career, the more and more I crave and NEED those intimate family and friends moments/memories.
I’m now laying next to, or on, her (she’s out cold). Her computer is watching her (Netflixs lol), and my younger brother has his head phones on 100, singing around the house like he’s crazy. Oh, let me not forget that there’s already been some disagreements. smh Yea..I’m in the right house! lol
It’s definitely the moments I need! 🙂
Well, tomorrow is the day to release every ounce of gratitude and thankfulness one can imagine. Everyone will, energetically, be on the same wavelength. So, I suggest you take advantage!
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”—Melody Beattie
