Take The Time
Here we are, Thanksgiving is upon us in only a few days. Everyone is busy cleaning house, decorating for the holiday, pulling out favorite family recipes, doing last minute food shopping, perhaps even preparing to travel to visit friends or loved ones. Of course the kiddos also have a four day weekend, which can add to the craziness. But let’s try to enjoy the holiday, don’t let the stress of things compiled run you down. This is the time to enjoy some quality time with those you love. Yes, I know, you’re thinking of all the food you have to prep for company, but trust me the turkey will make it to the table! This holiday is about giving thanks for what you have…key word here is “have”. So many people feel they constantly need more or don’t have enough, that they tend to forget to be thankful for the true blessings we already have been given. So whether you’re putting on a dinner for twenty or just two remember it’s still Thanksgiving.
Take some of this time off to enjoy things you may be too busy to enjoy with the hectic schedule of work, school, or travel….like enjoying fun time with your children or loved ones you don’t get to see that often. So many take time for granted, putting things off till later. But what if later never comes around again? Time flies by us too quickly to put off spending special moments with loved ones: so sit and listen to Grandpops stories of back in the day, learn how to make that dish of your Mom’s you so love, or unleash that inner child that’s been hiding inside you and go jump in the leaves with your kids!
Before you know it Monday will come around again and we’ll be back to school/work as usual. Remember to take the time for what’s most important in life…FAMILY.
Wishing all of you and your families a very Happy Thanksgiving
