Thanksgiving Is A Great Reminder
I hope you are all able to spend time and get together with friends, family, and your community this long weekend. Around Thanksgiving, people oftentimes reflect on what they're grateful for. Although it's great to practice gratitude all year round, Thanksgiving provides the perfect opportunity to reflect on deeply on the things that are meaningful and important to you.
I decided to write this blog post because sometimes, gratitude is difficult! When tough things happen in our lives, or even when our day to day lives seem normal or uneventful, it can be easy to take things for granted and forget gratitude. It happens to the best of us! So, I'm taking this opportunity to reflect on the things that I can be grateful for no matter what. I would love to hear what things you're grateful for, too!
Our Health & Health Care Facilities
This has been a personal topic for me in the past months, as we have been working towards long term care for my husband's father. My father has also been going through cancer treatments. These are difficult and emotional circumstances, but I've been working hard to be grateful for the high quality and careful treatment they have been getting. It has truly helped me keep a positive perspective to remember that we have access to such great assistance.
I'm also grateful for my own healthy body, that of my family, and the fact that we just celebrated my mother's 80th birthday together.
Our Families, Friends & Communities
Community means different things to different people, but for me, I have my loving husband, my children, my first grandchild little Enzo, my family, my friends, and my health & work community. I am truly blessed to live my life surrounded by so many incredible people that inspire me!
Our Personal Journeys
Be grateful for everything you've experienced that makes you who you are, as well as the strength you've demonstrated by getting yourself through all that life has thrown at you. Life is a rollercoaster, and every hardship eventually leads to something good.
We Have So Much To Be Thankful For
I'm wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving with lots to be grateful for!
