Happy Thanksgiving, 2017!

Happy Thanksgiving, 2017

 

I know I haven’t been posting lately…but I couldn’t think of a better way to “get back on my blog” with a post wishing all my readers a happy thanksgiving.  I’m so grateful for your readership!  I know it goes without saying…but a blog doesn’t exist without readers.  So thank you for coming back so often to read and to support this place!

Without taking up more of your time on this holiday– Happy Thanksgiving, 2017 style!

And PS: thanks for being so patient and understanding about my absence.  I was taking off time for my little growing family.  But you should see some new posts popping up here and there during the holidays.  Maybe not as frequent as usual, but I’ll be around.  I hope you will be too!

Thanksgiving 2016

Happy Thanksgiving!  In the words of John Greenleaf Whittier, may “thy life be as sweet, and its last sunset sky / Golden-tinted and fair as thy own Pumpkin pie!”  Side note: mine is cooling right now.

Even though I am don’t enjoy 99% of traditional Thanksgiving fare, I’m 100% a celebrator of this holiday!  There should be a Thanksgiving every month, or even every week, because there is just SO so SO so much to be thankful for.  I would just like to name four things that right now I am incredibly thankful for:

  1. Faith- I am Catholic and having a faith to hold on to is my rock throughout this unpredictable Army life
  2. Family – my perfect husband is my best friend, and our darling baby is the apple of our eyes
  3. Health- there have only been a few times in my life where I have been generally “unwell” and I hated it!
  4. Memories- as a very sentimental person, it means so much to have years of memories that make me smile

I know Thanksgiving is not simply about being thankful.  It’s historic roots call to mind a sense of patriotism and honor among us.  The holiday also stands as a reminder to give, share, and nurture– both our own family, as well as the families in our world.  I don’t want to get preachy or cliche about it, so I will stop there.  But I would love to hear from you in the comments!  What does Thanksgiving mean to you, and how do you celebrate it?

Happy Thanksgiving!
