Well, in two days it will be Thanksgiving. This year is going to be a little different. My husband is deployed and I will be spending it with my two daughters. It's really not going to be the same, but I'm doing okay with it. I mean I miss my husband, but he is doing his job and I need to stay positive and upbeat so he can complete his mission. This year I am helping out others and taking the focus off of me! I believe by doing this I can really embrace the holiday with the Thanks that I'm suppose to be. We get through this time of year by thanking for all we have. I'm thankful for what isn't around this year because it has helped me realize how much my husband means to me and all he does for me on a daily basis.
So, take a step back and maybe be thankful for what isn't around this year and how it will change you or make you more appreciative than you have in the past.
