Today is Thanksgiving.
My kids have been ‘schooling’ me about the 1st Thanksgiving, you know, when the Pilgrims sailed the ocean blue in … wait, that was Columbus ….
Anyway … they’ve been reminding me about my history lessons; the Mayflower, Plymouth Rock, Squanto …. the whole thing! It’s been quite enlightening and fun to listen to what they learn in school, and so YOUNG! They are only 5 and 7 years old and are learning more than I had by the time I was 10!
The past few years have been filled with a lot of hardships in my family. We’ve had times where we were scraping pennies for groceries and gas for the car to deposit the few dollars we could scrape up to get a money order to get our utilities put back on! I’ve been paid off from downsized corporations, my husband has had dry spells in his business when we weren’t sure when we’d have income rolling back in …. it taught us a lot about budgeting and growing where we were planted; using what we had to grow as a family in spirit and income.
We are so thankful for so much in our lives, the good things and the hardships.
We are all healthy; 3 children who have rarely been sick and certainly nothing serious.
While we have ailments, none keep us from moving forward to make a better life for all of us.
We have eachother – our love is strong and our faith is larger than life.
We have a roof over our heads, food filling our bellies, and family & friends who support us.
We spend every Thanksgiving together, reminding each other what it means to be where we are, together.
I hope you always remember the blessings that are bestowed upon you every day and give thanks for them.
Tell your loved ones you love them and thank everyone for all you have.
“I may not be where I want to be but I’m thankful for not being where I use to be.”
