Thankful During the Holidays

“I Am Thankful For…

…the mess to clean after a party because it means I have been surrounded by friends.

…the taxes I pay because it means that I am employed.

…the clothes that fit a little too snug because it means I have enough to eat.

…my shadow who watches me work because it means I am out in the sunshine.

…a lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning and gutters that need fixing because it means that I have a home.

…the spot I find at the far end of the parking lot because it means I am capable of walking.

…all the complaining I hear about our government because it means we have freedom of speech.

…my huge heating bill because it means that I am warm.

…the lady who sings off key because it means I can hear.

…the piles of laundry and ironing because it means I have clothes.

…the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it means that I’m alive.

…weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day because it means I have been productive.”

Happy Holidays my beautiful readers. I hope everyone takes these next few days to drop your to-do list, forget about your food rules and workout schedule, and spread lots of love and joy to everyone around you, while also allowing yourself to receive the love and joy coming your way. Take this time to notice and be grateful for the little things, relax and spend time doing the activities that make you feel whole and alive. XOXO
