Today is the first day of November. It's amazing we are now one month to go before saying good-bye to year 2017. With the arrival of November, the major holiday season begins. It all starts with Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I appreciate it's not as commercialized as the other major holidays of the year. I also have a strong appreciation about the main principles behind the holiday: family and giving thanks. I will admit 2017 has been a challenging year. However, I have so much to be grateful for despite the challenges I have personally contended with this year.
For example, when we have our basic needs met, we can easily forget to be grateful for our health, roof over heads, and food. There are so many out in the world who dream or strive to have full health, a place call home, clean water, and a warm fulfilling meal. Let's not take this for granted because it's easy to do so.
I'm grateful for having a loving family which includes my husband. My immediate family have helped me to get through some rough life patches and brought much love into my life. Similarly, my husband also been by my side and loving, supporting me through it all.
The friends I have in my life have added many years of zest and excitement. I recall travel adventures, sharing life stories, and fun Afternoon tea times, especially in London!
I'm grateful for Indigo Ember's customers. Thank you for purchasing and loving our products. We appreciate our customer stories and learning the impacts our products are making on your loving relationships. We truly love creating products that make a difference!
Finally, I'm grateful for my faith in God and what it has done in my life. I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for my Christian faith. I have to especially thank my mother and maternal grandmother for being great examples and teachers of the faith.
I'm so ever grateful! Let's not forget the small joys in life.
Take a moment to reflect on what you are grateful for this Thanksgiving holiday season. Gather with your family and/or friends around the dinner table and absorbed that special moment in time with them. I hope your Thanksgiving holiday is a joyous and wonderful celebration!
