As I put the finishing touches on this post, I’m looking out the window at one of my favorite views, the stunning shores of Lake Superior. (Hence, the photos selected for this post.) If you’re a Dear Reader living in the US, you are likely busy with your Thanksgiving preparations, whatever they might be. (I guess you can tell, I’m not.)
Perhaps you’re running around shopping, cleaning, cooking and baking. Maybe you’re getting ready to travel to Grandma’s house. Maybe you’re looking forward to a few relaxing days off from work. Maybe you’re looking forward to seeing dear ones you haven’t seen in ages. Maybe you’re looking forward to the holiday season. Maybe not so much. Maybe you’ll be spending time with loved ones. Maybe you are and will be alone, by choice – or not by choice.
Whatever you are doing, or not doing, this feels like the perfect time to say, thank you, Dear Readers. Thank you for reading Nancy’s Point. Thank you for being part of this community. I am grateful you are here.
As a community, we are connected. I “see” you. I “hear” you, and I care about what you have to say.
If you are struggling today due to whatever reason, may it help to know you are welcome here, and it’s safe to share your truths here.
These things cannot be said often enough, don’t you agree?
And remember, gratitude is not a contest.
And now, to all of you who celebrate the day, Happy Thanksgiving!
If you live in the US, how are you spending the Thanksgiving holiday?
Are you looking forward to the holidays, or not so much?
Are you struggling today and if so, would you like to share about why you are?
