What are you thankful for? This is normally the question that is popped once or twice during this time of the year. I am so blessed that I have so much to be thankful for, my health, amazing family, the best guy I could ask for, being able to go to school, a loving home to go back to when I get sick of the dorms, little letters my sister sends me to brighten my day, and my list could go on. I know during November people post little things on Facebook each day saying what they are thankful for, but does just putting a couple words really bring out your true thankfulness. I do not think so, go out there and show people you are thankful for them, do a good deed..that will show so much more than just posting a simple status on Facebook. I am so excited to be on break for Thanksgiving and to spend this great holiday with the amazing, loving people I have in my life. As I get older, I am starting to appreciate my family more than before. I used to be selfish and just think everyone has it like I do, but really some people don’t have what I have, and I am so thankful for being this lucky to have wonderful people in my life.
Usually, for Thanksgiving my family doesn’t really do “dinner”, we normally do lunch. Just around half-time of the football game. I’m not really that much of a football fan, so I could care less. But my family on the other hand…..they are crazy about football, so we usually all eat in the dining room/kitchen while the game is on. Afterwards I head out with Parker to Grandma Eva’s house for dinner. It is a big thing for her to have everyone out for dinner, and she loves bringing out her fine china for special occasions like this. I really am thankful to get to experience two thanksgivings that are totally different atmospheres, and I really enjoy both!
I hope everyone has a great thanksgiving and students/family driving home, be safe!!!
P.S: What are some of your family traditions that you do for thanksgiving, whether it be dishes or just traditions?
How cute are these little guys?! And that place mat is such a great idea! xoxo
