“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.”
-William Arthur Ward
As the craziness of this time of year swirls around me, I am grateful for the deep breath that Thanksgiving offers. It’s a reminder to put down my never-ending to-do list, crazy work schedule, school commitments, holiday planning, worries about the latest round of colds, all of the typical exhaustion and frustration, anxiety and chaos that comes with being a working mom with two little ones at home…and just be. Breathe. See. Appreciate. Because hidden by all of the everyday clutter are so many blessings. The smiles and hugs from little sisters. The warmth and safety of being together in our home. The sweet and fleeting, overwhelming and crazy moment of life that we are in. I am grateful for it all.
Wishing you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving filled with love, joy, and deep breaths.
