It’s hard to believe we are in the midst of the holiday season already. Christmas seems to arrive at every retail store earlier and earlier each year. It’s really easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle each holiday season brings. I’m guilty of having the Christmas gift list written out and asking everyone I know for their extra Macy’s coupons. While I love celebrating Christmas and ringing in the new year, my most favorite holiday is Thanksgiving.
What other holiday can you “come as you are” with a baked casserole and eat until your heart’s content? Growing up, Thanksgiving was always spent at my parent’s home. I sat at the infamous “kids’ table,” located in the kitchen, for years. Then, there were the “nearly absent” years where I ate quickly so I could go out to a local pub with my friends. Before I knew it, I was drinking wine with everyone around the “real” dining room table talking about mortgage rates, politics (only when my Dad wasn’t around) and other local news. It’s funny how time flies – now I’m setting my son at a little toddlers’ table with his cousins for Thanksgiving.
Best of all (yet often forgotten) Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for all the blessings (big and small) that life has given me. With that said, I have decided to make a conscience effort to thank those special someone’s and let them know how grateful I am to have them in my life. And, there is no better place to start than here at Imperfect Women. I am so very thankful to have Pam, Ann, Anya, Jennie, Samantha, Lily, Erin and Elizabeth in my life! You ladies are awesome and I am grateful for the friendships we have made!
How do you share your Thanksgiving? What are you most thankful for?
