Giving Thanks this Day

Today I am grateful for: 

  • waking to sunshine and in a warm bed next to my husband–I feel loved; 
  • the pile of laundry on the couch that needs to be folded–my family has clothes to wear;
  • the lingering scent of sauteed green pepper and onion–I prepared our traditional Thanksgiving stuffing yesterday, and the aroma reminds me of holidays when I was growing up.

Today my intention is to keep my thoughts and attention in the present moment.  Spending time with family comes with a certain amount of stress, so I want to focus on enjoying everyone and being spontaneous and flexible.  And speaking of that, I’m off to catch some of the Macy’s Parade on the TV with my daughter!

Happy Thanksgiving, Dear Ones!
