With there being a lot on everyone’s plates, (no pun intended), before the Thanksgiving Holiday, it’s important to carve out moments, in the course of the day or evening, to reflect on the blessings which come our way.
I sometimes read where folks refer to the word ‘blessing’, defined as “a beneficial thing for which one is grateful; something that brings well-being”, as somewhat contrived or overly sentimental. Perhaps some things are viewed as givens’'; however, I think giving thanks is ALL about recognizing that everything in life isn’t to be expected and should be considered a gift, whether or not it’s earned or given.
Over the next Twelve Days of Thanksgiving, I’m going to share “Moments of Thanks”. Gratitude is a key component in a well-designed life and home.
(My “Frozen Up” transferware pattern enjoys a bit of extra attention, during Thanksgiving and the winter months, ahead. Today it definitely felt, “frozen up”!)
All my best! ~ Wanda
