It's here! My favorite kick-off to the holiday season! Although I may or may not have already started listening to Christmas music this past week. Man, it's been tough trying to pump the holiday brakes. But I can't help it, I love it! "Oh the weather outside is frightful ..." (hardly, it's supposed to be 80º tomorrow). Anywho, I digress.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all! I have so much to be grateful for from my husband and kids, to my wonderful family and friends. One side note of gratitude I have is that I'm into my fourth book this year! Those of you with kids know that something as simple as reading a book can be quite the feat. First it was Simplicity Parenting (I did a chapter write up here), then The Tipping Point, The Power of Now (promise to do a write up soon on all I got from this book–amazing!), and I just started A New Earth. The latter two are by Eckhart Tolle who has profoundly left an impact on me. Since childhood my eyes have always been open to spirituality, but now I feel awake. Just another blessing to count today.
What about you? Would love to hear what you are especially grateful for this year. Even the simplest things count.
Wishing everyone a wonderful, peaceful day today full of great food and laughter! Group hug:)
