Thanksgiving 2017

Here we are again, my favorite day of the year. This year has been one of many changes, upsets and new beginnings, all of which were needed. And, that makes this holiday season different than any other. Over the years I have realized there are a lot of reasons to be thankful, and to cherish those you hold close, and also to appreciate where you have been, who you are and the future for what it may hold.

Today I am thankful for my family of friends who have stayed true to me, and reminded me that life is beautiful, even when it is dark. I am also thankful for the online community that has been built surrounding my site, and those who are always checking in to brighten my days, or to give me a smile.

Thanksgiving is my favorite because it is the one day out of the year that people slow down and make time for one another. It is the day that families come together, no matter what differences they may have. It is the day that we all join together to feast over food and desserts, and to appreciate those around us, and to not worry about tomorrow. Even if just for a moment.

For my friends in the states, here’s wishing you and your family a wonderful and very happy Thanksgiving! May your day be filled with tons of food and loved ones. Now, with that said, I hope you’re only forced to be around those you actually want to spend time with. If you have to endure that one family member that makes your blood boil, remember, it’s my favorite day of the year! Today is the one day when nothing else matters…and drink a lot of hard liquor. May I suggest you go straight for the whiskey? lol.

For those of you, who are my friends, but not in the states, I hope you’re having an amazing day and that you’re not forced to be around anyone you don’t want to be around because, well, it’s not Thanksgiving and I don’t have a good pep-talk for you…but, whiskey helps if you’re having a terrible day, I’ve been told. LOL.
