It is now after the big feast of a holiday called Thanksgiving, I pray you all are in great health and mind, and are preparing for a detox! Apologies, this should have went up the day before or the day of but once you get with family it’s hard to do anything except enjoy the time given!
I traveled to Charlotte, NC to be with my mom. I was very bothered by the fact that my grandfather couldn’t be there, but he assured me he’d be fine and he was well taken care of by one of his neighbors as far as food is concerned. My brother was in Charlotte with us as well.
Let me paint a picture for you of Thanksgiving or any family holiday for that matter prior to 2 years ago…simply put, it was never just my mom, my brother and I. Do not read this wrong, any time with them is a blessing in which I am forever grateful & thankful for, it’s just that you miss the way things used to be. When people move on from this physical life, or move away, it’s kind of hard to keep traditions going I guess. I need to have children to add to the mix lol.
Needless to say, I am thankful! I am thankful for the love of family whether near or far, I am thankful for growing up around all of my family and seeing how important it is to have those moments in order to have those memories, I am thankful for my mom and the time & energy she put into making sure we were well fed and happy, I am thankful I was able to take the trip down to her, I will be even more thankful when she is much more closer to us.
I am thankful for life and this journey I am on, I am thankful for my nephews and the joy they bring to my whole entire being, I am thankful for my health and the time and dedication I put in to make sure I’m caring for my mind/body/spirit in the most natural ways possible, I am thankful to be able to share what I learn through my research and personal experiences…in hopes of helping others, I am thankful for my new job though it could be temporary and I’m slightly overwhelmed but I will take each work day head on and learn what I can!
I am thankful for nature and what it teaches you if you pay close attention, I am thankful for so much that the list could go on and on, but most importantly I am thankful for the titles that have been given to me; daughter, granddaughter, sister, aunt, best friend, and soon enough…wife & mother!
It’s not about the food, which we intake way too much of, but about the gifts we are given…which despite a holiday, we should be thankful for every single day. So today, as you are reading this, I ask you “what are you thankful for TODAY?!”
