Ahhhhhhhh, Thanksgiving Day has passed, but Thanksgiving really goes on every day right? Or at least it should. Thanksgiving Day was low key this year, but oh so perfect. It was just me, my hubby, 3 of my boys and my dad. Once again, I was the only girl to be found in the house. Last year was a tough Thanksgiving, but this year was all about being Thankful for everything I do have and being present in the moment, rather than being sad about what I don't have, or more accurately, who I don't have.
This whole Holiday season feels different this year. It feels more special and more important than ever, that I try and savor each moment of it. I guess it is because I have become more keenly aware that at any moment things can drastically change and I don't want to waste a minute not doing what I feel in my heart is most important.
My family is what is most important to me.... my children, my husband, my dad, my brothers and their families. Doing things that feed my soul is also very important to me right now. Being creative every day in some form whether it be cooking, sewing, crafting or getting back to the mixed media I loved so much last year. I have felt overwhelmed recently and not very centered and I want that to change. This past week with family surrounding me, I have been able to pull myself back to center and here is where I want to stay.
I hope that you all have a very beautiful Holiday and that you find time to celebrate and appreciate the simple things that make our hearts and souls happy. It isn't the perfect gift bought at a store or finding the greatest sale on Black Thursday or Friday, but something much deeper that can only be found when we look inside ourselves at what really matters. Find that and go with it.
Merry Every Day to all of you.
