Tis The Season For Thanksgiving
As we head into a season of joy and cheer, sometimes it becomes a hard pill for us women of angels to swallow. I get it. I’ve been there…..I am you….
Sometimes I scroll through social media and see family pictures of moms, dads and their children and my heart stings a little. This is when I close my eyes and count my blessings. And that’s what I want to encourage you to do today, count your blessings. When an ache comes out of nowhere, remember WHOSE you are and that God is FOR YOU!
I know it’s easier to think about what we don’t have as our hearts ache for the loss we have endured, but when we stop and look around we can see what we are so blessed to have. I also take time to thank God that my friends have such beautiful families. I don’t wish this pain or emptiness on anybody, and when the green monster starts to poke his ugly head in – I remember to be so thankful that my friends and loved ones might not have to face this empty feeling. As I see smiling faces of a family all together, I remember what a blessing children are and it helps the sting to be less piercing.
Thanksgiving is more than just passing the turkey around the table, but it’s truly a time to remember the blessings we DO have and share in the true joy of this season!
I pray this season that you are overwhelmed with thanksgiving and love!
