Happy week of Thanksgiving everyone and welcome to my first TIMEOUT post! I am excited to have this as well as my main blog because it's a good way to check in with me. The main goal of this is to share a little about whats going on with our family each week, share some advice, and other fun things! I will still be doing my longer posts just not every week like I will with these!
With it being Thanksgiving in a couple of days I want to share a little about why I am thankful, not just this week, not just on Thanksgiving, but everyday. I really make it a goal to be thankful each day, so every morning and night I pray and say what I'm thankful for. I thank God for simple things in life... things like having a roof over my head, for my health/safety, and for great family/friends in our life. I'm thankful for a God who loves us unconditionally. I'm thankful for my wonderful husband and son, and for there health and happiness... I am truly thankful God chose them to be in my life. Our family has been blessed and we may have more than others... but everything is not perfect in our lives and we have tough times just like everyone else. I am thankful for the bad and good times we've experienced because they have taught us valuable lessons. I pray that any of you who are going through a difficult time to just stop and think about what you are thankful for (and don't say nothing because there's always something), whether big or small. I really do think it's so important to be thankful not just on Thanksgiving but everyday! I do love Christmas and yes sometimes I wish we could skip to it but I am also so glad there is a Holiday where people can pause for one day and think about how much they really do have.
Anyone have any big Thanksgiving plans? Our Holidays have been a little different since Adam has been in the NFL. He usually is either playing or has practice...so getting together with family can be difficult. Last year Adam played on almost every Holiday including Thanksgiving, Halloween, Christmas Eve,and New Years Eve. His game falls on Thanksgiving again this year which kind of stinks but is also a blessing that he even gets to play the game he loves in front thousands of people. The game is at Detroit and luckily he flies home right after so we should have him back by 7pm (giving him just enough time to give Ash man a good night kiss before bed and then snuggle with his awesome wife;)). Asher and I will be having turkey and all the yummy sides with my parents, who thankfully live close to us...and just like last year I will save a BIG plate for Adam for when het gets home:) I hope you all have a wonderful, happy, and thankful Thanksgiving and get to spend it with family/loved ones!
