Slowing Down To Be Thankful at Home

“Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.”

W.T. Purkiser

I hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving. I decided to take a day off from social media and focus on the one thing that I care the most, my family. Thanksgiving is all about slowing down and reflecting on all the blessings that has been given to us thought out the year. 

This year we had a different approach and decided to have a stress-free, kid-friendly Thanksgiving. I simplified our traditional Thanksgiving menu, set the table with mason jars for a more Southern feel, and spent all day reconnecting and enjoying each other. 

There are a lot of things to be thankful this year but the one thing I'm most grateful is you. I'm eternally grateful for all of you that read our blog and support our mission. It means the world to me to know there's people out there that believe, as human beings, we all have the potential to be happy, kind and compassionate. 

From our family to yours, we wish you a happy holidays! May you have enough happiness to keep you sweet, enough trials to keep you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, enough hope to keep you happy, enough failure to keep you humble, enough success to keep you eager, enough friends to give you comfort, enough faith and courage in yourself to banish sadness, enough wealth to meet your needs and one thing more; enough determination to make each day a wonderful day than the one before.
