Though I may not be ready for Christmas, I am so excited for Thanksgiving. In a matter of a week, I will be back at home in Kansas, surrounded by loving family, eating good food, and enjoying the simplicity of being. As I have talked about Thanksgiving with various family members, the energy is overwhelming. Even grandpa, the one who doesn’t like to talk on the phone much, talked for a whole three minutes about how excited he was for Thanksgiving.
One thing I always leave Thanksgiving with is the beauty of my family. We aren’t perfect, we all have odd quirks, but yet we all get along. I have heard of many families who dread the holidays because they simply can’t get along. This is so hard for me to fathom. I am so blessed!
I am looking forward to starting some new traditions this year, possibly including running a 5K with Dad, Mom, Matt, and whoever else wants to on Thanksgiving day!
Try something new this holiday season! You might be pleasantly surprised at the results!
