This is a holiday that I appreciate, the world slows down a little, we can spend time with the ones we love, there is thought and care and old time traditions passed around tables that may frequently not be full of laughter and chatter. It gives us a moment to breathe before the blur of real life picks back up no more than 24 hours post pie ala mode or whipped cream depending on your preference.
As much as aI love slowing down I have to say there is not a day that I take what we have for granted. I am so thankful to be a mom to 4 wonderful healthy children, as well as being given the opportunity to stay home and enjoy them every day. I am thankful for my husband who saves other peoples family members everyday to provide for our family and that he empowers me to stay home and nurture our children. Our little drop in this big pond connects to so many ripples that are friends and family who we are so fortunate to be connected with. Thank you! And enjoy the slow down today.
