Today I wanted to revive a tradition I had a few years ago on the blog. You see, I absolutely love Thanksgiving. And unfortunately, I feel like it is the forgotten holiday. Sandwiched between Halloween -a holiday that celebrates free candy- and Christmas (admittedly my favorite) poor Thanksgiving seems to get lost in the shuffle.
So this month, I want to take a minute each Thursday and focus on something I'm thankful for. After all, as I mentioned in this post, even in the middle of turbulent and difficult times, there is always something to be grateful for.
I will not deny that this year has been a difficult one. Getting divorced is never easy. But despite the hardships of wading through that difficulty, this year has also been full of amazing blessings that I never want to deny or forget.
This week I am particularly grateful for the ability I have to provide for my family. My children are my everything and the fact that I have the means to put a roof over their heads, clothes on their backs and food in their bellies means the world to me.
I encourage you, my dear readers, to take a minute today and consider the things you are thankful for. Even if life is horribly difficult for you at the moment, I promise that there is something within it to be grateful for. Find it, cling to it, and most of all acknowledge it!
