I was going to shy away from what my be perceived as cliché; I wasn’t going to write about thanksgiving. Then I changed my mind because there’s nothing cliché about giving thanks. I have countless things to be thankful for, but I want to dedicate this post to one special thing near and dear to my heart.
Now, I’m an only child… But my mother has 10 siblings, my father 2. I have countless family, and on this day, I want to express how thankful I am to have so many of them, and especially to have been able to share today with them. Everyone wasn’t there, but my heart smile at every single one who was and the ones who weren’t able to share. There was a time we were more highly close knit, but the familial ties have seemingly been severed. In recent years, it seemed we came together more for the tragedies that occurred. There’s nothing wrong with coming together in those times, but what about when things are good? The featured image doesn’t nearly represent my entire family, but it spreads a little of the joy we shared on this day.
My prayer is that my family, and all, will find time to celebrate life, together, all throughout the year. When we stand together, we are strengthened, we learn, we grow, and most importantly… We love!
Happy Thanksgiving! ❤
