So today is Thanksgiving.
This morning I woke up wondering what the day would have in store for me. It was a cold start but as the day went on Atyrau gave us it's blue skies.
I love the blue skies here in these cold winter days They make me happy. They certainly make the winter cold bearable.
2016 has been a tough year and so much has happened but when I go to put my head on the pillow at night I still smile because life is still good. And there is a lot more good than bad so we must be thankful
Today I had that aha moment - i know this is going to sound cheesy but I realised that the more we give thanks, the more happy we are. Not that smile on my face happy, but heart happy. That bubbly, warm happy feeling in your heart that puts a smile on your face.
That's a good feeling.
So today, the day of Thanksgiving we will give thanks, but I'd like to give thanks and continue to be grateful tomorrow and the next day and the next - and hopefully the day after that.
I think that's maybe something I'll need to be working on.
We won't have our dinner till tomorrow night in our community. It will be on Friday night here and also cause we're a diverse community and we like to bend the rules a little!!
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone. Enjoy your families and enjoy your meals.
I know they'll be good!!
