Let's Have Another Piece of Pie
Sometimes life cries out for a nice break from the daily routine …… a pie break, so to speak. A time to sit, to listen, to reflect. To taste the sweetness of life.
This coming Thursday, in the USA, is Thanksgiving Day. It represents the beginning of the Christmas season and a day to be thankful.
Most seem to celebrate by gathering with loved ones and feasting on a wonderful roasted (or fried or tofu-ed) turkey with stuffing and sweet potatoes and mashed potatoes and gravy and cranberry sauce and pies and rolls and………. whatever food you love.
Others celebrate by shopping for Christmas. I did the major day after sale thing (aka Black Friday) only once. I. Will. Never. Do. That. Again.
I’m not a great shopper. That means that the task is not pleasant to me. Online shopping is wonderful.
Back to Thanksgiving. It is a time to be thankful. Well, it’s always time to be thankful. But this is the season that more people give thanks than normal.
Today I am thankful for my relationship with Jesus. He is my best Friend and always good.
I am thankful for my Family, and that includes the Friends that have become my family also. I have the best sons and daughters and grandkids a person could possibly ask for. I am thankful for my husband – even though he broke my favorite mug – he is the best for me.
I am thankful for my health and for my future. I am expecting mighty things to come to pass.
I am thankful for the one daughter I gave birth to and lost too early in life. BUT – I truly am thankful to have been her mom and known her. The memories I have are amazing.
Giving thanks, in general, brings smiles and peace to your heart. It’s a good practice and I believe opens the windows and doors to a better life no matter what your circumstances.
May your mouths and hearts be full of thankfulness this season and always. Give it a go! You may be surprised how your perspective changes over time.
