Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. Sometimes, it seems like the only holiday that has been left relatively untouched by the overarching, plastic coated, consumerism that has slowly overtaken every other celebration. But Thanksgiving is still a holiday about a virtue – gratitude, thankfulness, noticing the good and being grateful for it. What can be more wonderful than that?
Today I am grateful for so many things.
Birth What other gift is more wonderful than this one? The ability to grow closer together as a couple and as you welcome a bundle of pure innocence.
Education I am so grateful for the quick and easy access to knowledge that we have in this day and age. I am especially grateful for the education that helped make all my birth experiences wonderful.
Motherhood It isn’t always easy, but every mom must admit that being a mother is simply amazing. You spend the journey of motherhood thinking that you are giving and sacrificing only to one day wake up and realize that you have received more than you could ever give.
Family Family is what it is really all about, isn’t it? Growing babies and raising children and being happy together.
May your Thanksgiving holiday be filled with happiness, good food, friends and family and may we all be a little more grateful for the many gifts we have been given.
