Giving Thanks and Some Time Off
My husband showed me a meme the other day that said, "Black Friday: because only in America people trample each other for sales exactly one day after being thankful for what they already have." I had a good laugh but in reality isn't that the truest statement? I urge you this Thanksgiving to take some time out to truly give thanks for what you have, whether you celebrate the holiday or not. It's about so much more than a holiday; it's time spent with family, coming together to share and love and laugh. It's about being thankful for the things that we have and giving back what we can, whether that be through monetary means or through time. My husband and I have the opportunity to serve others as we've volunteered at the shelter to serve food to people less fortunate than us. I am so thankful for the opportunity and that I have the means to do something for my community. Even if you do nothing other than stay home, just think about one thing that you are grateful for, that someone else would give anything to have. I am so very thankful to have all my amazing blog readers who make me feel so blessed to be a part of this community.
That being said, I am also fortunate enough to have two real days off...no running errands, no cleaning, no working, just two blissful days spent with family and being grateful. Please excuse the lack of posts for Thursday and Friday as I didn't pre-plan any posts because that's just not how this blogger rolls. I hope if you do celebrate Thanksgiving you have a wonderful one, and if not I hope you all have an amazing weekend full of happiness and love! XO
