Remembering What Really Matters

I think we can all agree that the whirlwind of activity in which we find ourselves during the holiday season can overwhelm us. Sometimes we lose sight of the reasons why we celebrate days like Thanksgiving. In other words, we all know that Thanksgiving isn’t just about a turkey dinner, a parade, and a football game…but we get so wrapped up in those details that we overlook the true spirit of the day.

On that note, I’m putting down my apron (for the moment) and am reflecting on some of the things I am thankful for:

My children (for the joy they bring to me; and for all they teach me about being a parent)

My husband (for love and support – even when I have meltdowns)

For being back in school (because dreams are something we should never let go of)

For friends both old and new (including everyone at 5 Minutes for Special Needs)

I encourage everyone to do the same — take a few minutes to think about what you’re thankful for — and feel free to share some of your own reflections with us. Post a comment here or email me at [email protected]. Thank you and have a great holiday!
