By now you may be still snuggled up in bed relaxing for a few more minutes before the hustle of the day begins. Maybe you’ve been up for hours and the smell of your signature sweet potato pie is currently wafting through the air. Perhaps you’re on the road with bleary eyed littles racing to your next destination.
I’m probably somewhere in the middle still in my jammers watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade waiting for the festivities to begin. Undoubtedly, there is an interesting mix of turkey roasting, pies baking and coffee…lots and lots of coffee.
I’ve been thinking about the importance of Thanksgiving over the past few days. It seems to be the one day we’re all intentional about showering each other with grace, love, and appreciation. The one day we celebrate gathering around the table to share a space with family, friends, neighbors and coworkers bringing the gift that only we can bring…ourselves.
As you look around the table and revel in the traditions and laughter that is unique to your Thanksgiving, know that I’m counting each of you as a blessing. It’s an honor and a privilege to spend time with you every day. I hope your moments are filled with more love than your heart can hold and everywhere you go you find goodness, kindness, joy and peace. You mean the world to me.
