Happy Thanksgiving!

Over the years, it has been a tradition that my entire family will come and enjoy Thanksgiving in my home. This year things has been a little different I’ve decided to cook just for my kids, grandkids, and my father. My hubby was pleased with the idea. He knows every time I’ve a gathering every detail and menu needs to be pure perfection. Sometimes I end with frustration, unhappy, and depressed. I love my family, however this year it’s all about my own family and my health. Everyone ended doing their own dinner and honestly, I believe they are mad at me.

This morning I watch the Macy Thanksgiving Parade with my grandkids and the cooking went smoothly. I wasn’t running around the house cleaning and cooking at the same time. Finally we got to sit around the dinner table, pray, and have a fun conversation. After we all ate, we have the chance to play the game UNO and watch some football.

This is what I always want for Thanksgiving. Have my kids at home, a nice dinner, be relaxed, and enjoy the rest of the day. It was perfect. I should do the same for Christmas.

To everyone who got to celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope you all have an amazing day.  And tomorrow would be a day to put up my Christmas tree.snoopy



Happy Thanksgiving!

happy4I used to work at the grocery store for twelve years and my thanksgiving was cooking dinners for the customers until 3 pm. I would get home tired with no inspiration to prepare a meal for my own family. My husband then was the cook.

Since I’m been working at the school for the last three years everything has been changed. I get up early on Thanksgiving to preheat the oven and to start to cook for my family also to watch the Macy’s Parade.

My Christmas tree is done and just waiting to be lit up tonight. The rest of the decorations will come soon. Meanwhile, I’m enjoying my coffee and the quiet of my home.

To everyone who celebrated the holidays I want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy the coziness of your home, the food, the parade, the football game, and your family.

  1. I’m truly blessed for getting up early and to cook for my family.
  2. I’m truly blessed for being home and enjoy the day.
  3. I’m truly blessed for having a loving and caring family.
  4. I’m truly blessed for having another wonderful year and for having the opportunity to live another holiday.
  5. I’m truly blessed for having a wonderful job that gives me the opportunity to spend the holidays with my family.

Thank you for all the good things I have and for all the good things I already have. Thank you, God for everything!
