Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
I am officially stuffed from all the food I consumed today. We did our Thanksgiving today (a day early) at home because we are invited to my brother’s side tomorrow. So today I made all kinds of dishes and dessert and invited my husband’s sister and family for a brunch. It was a great day filled with fun, laughter, food, and a lot of groaning post-meal! 😊
But Thanksgiving is not only about the food. It is about giving thanks and appreciating our lives and families/friends.
If you are really thankful, what do you do? You share! So without further ado, I would like to share everything and everyone I am grateful for this Thanksgiving.If you are really thankful, what do you do? You share! Click To Tweet
Despite my bickering or emotional outbursts, he is my solid rock who always has my back. He gives me strength, motivates me, protects me, and helps me see things clearly.
This includes my brother, my mom, my in-laws, and my niece. Without them, my life wouldn’t be, especially my mom. She is the pillar of my life. I lost my best friend, my dad last year, and it is hard without him every single day. He was my buddy and my guide and losing him has been very difficult. But my mom has happily stepped in his shoes and I am grateful to her for taking care of my brother and I in dad’s absence.
I was 30 years old when I got married. That is basically old in our culture, especially for marriage. Many outside family members gave me taunts but then God blessed me with a wonderful man and he gave me 2 beautiful daughters. I am a fiercely protective of my girls, albeit I go overboard sometimes but at the end of the day, I do what I feel and know is best for them. They are the reason for my existence and I am grateful they gave me my new identity as their mom.
My health, a work-from-home job, and a stable life.
A smooth delivery
After our miscarriage last year, I was really worried when we got pregnant again. We had a few complications this year but in the end, thankfully our little baby girl came into our life safely. I am grateful to my husband and his support during the 32 hours of labor!
Learning from mistakes.
I have been learning a lot lately; about friends, life, choices I make/made. Maybe it’s almost resolutions time, but these past few months, I have been learning about several aspects of my life – things I need to change, people I need to ditch, choices I need to upgrade – and I am grateful for it because knowing what to change is the first step to making that change.
Lastly, I am grateful to the blogging community and all the fellow bloggers for their support and help as I pursue my blogging desire.
What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving? Please do share.
