As a foreigner in the USA - I always feel Thanksgiving is not my holiday.
I don't have that deep emotional attachment you likely have if it has been your tradition since childhood.
I do however LOVE this holiday.
The concept of getting together with friends and family to be thankful, is simply - lovely. Gathering around food is always a comfort for me.
So today, I will use this space to say what I am thankful for.
I am thankful for this blog. A place for me to go when parenting leaves me helpless with laughter, over-whelmed with love, spitting with frustration, tearful from exhaustion or feeling cut off from every day adult life.
I am thankful for you lovely readers. Your comments brighten my day.
The ascending hit counter makes me feel productive.
I am thankful for the community I have here.
I feel connected and supported.
I am thankful for my two beautiful girls who give me endless copy!
I am thankful for my trusty laptop.
I am thankful for my husband and our abundance.
I am thankful.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours and if is this is not your holiday either - wishing you a wonderful Thursday!
Go ahead and tell me what you are thankful for....
