Pre Thanksgiving Moment

Where are we today.....are we running around trying to get everything done? Are we stressed, tired, worried? I can answer yes to those! I want everything to be great, all my ideas to come together beautifully.

But not at the expense of my children. Often time when I am stressed or anxious it shows, and they know. They now the wide eyes, scared spacey look. The frazzled hair, sweaty brow.

But Holidays (however you celebrate) are about families, about spending time with each other and enjoying each other, regardless of how the table is decorated or the Turkey is brined.

Today I'm reminding myself to be mindful or the tastes, the sounds, the little witnesses. Who undoubtedly will remember what it was like to celebrate in your house, was it fun to prepare or was it a sham for your guests?
You don't need to be lectured on how much there is to be thankful for, and neither do I.

Sometimes though, we need to live it.


  1. beautiful centerpiece! Is that a hollowed out pumpkin?

  2. Short and sweet! A good reminder. Thank you. :)

  3. Lyndsey~ Nope! It's a candle I found in my Mom's collection from when they moved! All the items I have on my table I found around the house! Except for a few pumpkins we got at the pumpkin patch they give you for free!
