The holidays are upon us and thank God they start with a day that causes us to pause and give thanks.
We’re already bombarded with Christmas songs, stores filled with holiday decorations and gifts and holiday movies. And not to mention the political advertising and news filled with yuck.
And yet, how can you not be thankful on this wonderful holiday – Thanksgiving. No matter what your circumstances are with your family, your finances, your job (or lack thereof), if you’re reading this you’re alive!
When you get to a point where you can be happy just to wake up in the morning and CREATE a new day – life is good.
So last night as I spent last evening making the croutons for my wild mushroom stuffing, I realized how I am immensely thankful to my clients.
I have the good fortune (and the guts) to work for myself, attracting wonderful folks to work with.
I love helping people see how great they are and then express that online to the rest of the world.
Today, my son and his girlfriend Beth are traveling here from Boston “as we speak” and my other son and his wife Jen (and our grand dogs Otto and Iko) are getting ready to head on over. We’re going to spend the weekend cooking, eating and loving every moment we have together. I think I’ve even convinced Tom (my husband) to cut down a real tree this year with “the boys!”
Thanks to each and everyone of you – my friends, colleagues and clients for helping me create a life I love.
Happy Thanksgiving and may your days be good – no matter where you are in this wonderful journey we’re all on together.
I’m off now to pick up a turkey at a farm near Dayton before I make the pies, cranberries and homemade bread. Bownam Landes…. I’m excited as we’ve done this for several years, although this is the first time we’re getting it at this particular farm.
I’m also super excited about my personal website and logo that I’ve recently redesigned. The cards are ordered and the sites being built! I’m off already to a roaring start for 2012.
