Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday period....
I don't like how commercial Christmas has become (though I do enjoy the meaning of Christmas), I don't like Halloween and I have no use for Valentine's Day (never have).
I have always loved Thanksgiving...The sights, the smells, the food, the togetherness of families.
It marks the beginning of the holiday season to me.
My Dad always makes turkey on the grill along with all the fixings - Mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, baked mac-n-cheese, green beans, squash, rolls, pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce etc...
I don't work on Thanksgiving and normally don't work the day after because my Mom, Sister and I do the Black Friday shopping....
Yes we are those people who get up and are out of the house by 3:30am to shop...
I love Black Friday Shopping.
These past few months, I have been dreading the holiday season.
I have been thinking I want to just crawl in a hole until January because quite frankly I was thinking I didn't have much to be thankful for.
However I have been thinking the last few days and I have a lot to be thankful for.
I have wonderful friends, wonderful family, a wonderful Church family, a roof over my head, food on the table and clothes on my back.
I am Thankful for the situation God has placed me in because He has introduced me to things within myself that I never knew existed.
I am Thankful for all my bloggy friends who keep coming back, keep sending me encouraging messages and who are just there for me...
I love each and every one of you and I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving.
So Tonight We Pray For
What We Know Can Be.
And On This Day We Hope For
What We Still Can't See.
It's Up To Us To Be The Change
And Even Though We All Can Still Do More
There's So Much To Be Thankful For.
