It is so hard to believe that Thanksgiving is only a week away. It seems like September just started, and here we are at the end of November.
Life has been extremely busy lately, and I have not been able to devote as much time to my blog as I would like. It upsets me, because I really do love my blog and the things that I am sharing with my readers. Right now, I am working hard with Project Envolve, and can’t wait to bring you the next installment next Wednesday.
I know that this post with make your holidays merry & bright, especially with the energy savings you can implement in your own home! In the meantime, check out this post about prepping your home for winter.
In any case, with Thanksgiving coming, it makes me do a lot of thinking. I am upset that I will be missing a lot of time with my family next week. My retail job has me working a lot of evenings, and it hurts my heart to be away from my family so much. Working Mom guilt never gets any easier, even after all this time.
But work, and life, must go on, and I will do the best job that I can.
Despite that hiccup, I have so much I AM thankful for.
- I am thankful for all the service men and women who keep our country safe so that I can be with my family. Without them, none of us would be safe.
- I am thankful for my husband. I really can’t say that enough. He is my best friend, and always will be.
- I am thankful for my kids. Without them, what is the point of life? They are the reason why I deal with all the crazy Christmas shoppers.
- I am thankful that my employer is closed on Thanksgiving so I can spend the entire day with my family, share our meal, and fall asleep watching football.
- I am thankful for our home. It is always my refuge, and place of safety.
- I am thankful for my blog, and what it helps to provide for my family.
I also can’t express how deeply I hurt for those in Paris and other countries that have lost their loved ones during this heinous acts. If there is good to come out of it, it is this: I love and cherish my family even more.
Before I sign off for today, I want to share with you some of my favorite Thanksgiving posts.
