Mom’s Journal: Thanks & Giving

Good morning!

I cannot believe it is that time already. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving! The day we give thanks for all that we have. For our families, home and life. The history of Thanksgiving is a bit sketchy. Something I have been wanting to learn more about. I am not talking about what we were taught in grade school. BUT I am not going to get into that today.

Today, I want to say that we should ALWAYS be thankful. We do not need just one day to be grateful. We need not forget our blessing every single day. I am not saying we should not celebrate our Thanksgiving. It is the perfect time to make TIME to get together with our families and enjoy ourselves. I just believe we all need to be reminded that being thankful should always be on our minds and shown from our hearts.

I also want to add that Thanksgiving is also about GIVING. When we give our time, love and attention to others, we are giving them a reason to be thankful.

No matter how hard life can be, we all have something to be thankful for! I personally have a very long list. Regardless of some hardships, I will always try my best to remind myself how blessed I am…..every single day.
I am thankful for:

  • Being a Mother
  • Being a Wife
  • Knowing truth
  • Having a brain to think for myself
  • Homeschooling
  • Still having my Mother
  • Having friends in many places
  • A chance to share my point of view
  • My husband
  • My family

The list goes on and on, and in no particular order. I am so thankful that I can feed my family an amazing meal and spend quality time together. I am also grateful to be able to do this every day.

So, today I will keep a smile on my face remembering all I continue to be thankful for, and get ready to fill up on some amazing comfort food. How about you?

What are you thankful for?

    This is so true, I think many of us don’t see the blessings we have in front of us. Even if it’s just that we have been given the chance to see another day! There is Always something to be thankful for. And you know what, it’s not just about good things. In my life, I am thankful for the struggles I’ve had. They have made me stronger. They have made me accountable. They have shown me things I would have never seen. It has shown me never to take anyone for granted and that life is too short not to (try) to enjoy it.

    Thanks for sharing! I believe that we should be thankful every single day and not just on Thanksgiving! 🙂 That being said, here’s what I’m thankful for:

    – My husband for putting up with me
    – My parents for their unconditional support
    – My unwavering friends
    – And being able to do what I love
