With Thanksgiving upon us and the hustle and bustle that comes with the holiday season, I wanted to take a few moments today and reflect on a few things that I am thankful for. My Family
I feel so blessed to have a loving and caring family. They have all been so supportive of my career change, and I am thankful for their love and encouragement. From my immediate family, to the in-laws, to the extended family, to those near and far, it is such a comfort to know that we have loved ones to share the holidays, and ‘everydays’, with. I am especially thankful for the little ones – our niece and nephews – who, with their giggles, smiles, and ‘darndest things’ that they say, are constant reminders of the important things in life.
Old and new, I am thankful to have a circle of friends that are kind, caring, and fun. There are so many important things to do and be in life, but I truly believe that being a good friend is one of the top things on that list. There is nothing like reminiscing about old memories and making new ones with great friends. To all of my wonderful friends: thank you for being such a special part of my life!
Yes, I love color. I get to work with color on a daily basis and I love helping others bring color into their lives. Color can affect mood, and the right combinations of color can be stunningly beautiful. I am thankful to live in a world full of lovely colors!
It sounds silly, I know, but, I am thankful for Facebook. Facebook has allowed me to reconnect with old friends, teammates, and classmates. It lets me see pictures of friends’ families and babies, it also allows me to support local businesses and join causes I’m passionate about, and it provides breaking news faster than Usain Bolt can run 100 meters. From friends that live five minutes away to those that are halfway around the world, Facebook provides a vehicle to stay connected with those we care about. Besides, where else could I post pictures like this ;)?
Hello, my name is Cathy, and I’m a dessert-a-holic. It’s true. I don’t try to hide it. To me, desserts are certainly something to be thankful for. They really do make each day a little sweeter!
Lastly, I am thankful for you – my readers! You have been so supportive and encouraging and I am thankful for every reader, comment, email, and Facebook like!
I want to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving – be sure to enjoy the dessert :) !
