Thanksgiving is a holiday to be grateful, filled with love, warmth, and lots of delicious food! Yes it is fun to gather around with family and friends, but for those who have lost a loved one, it can be a difficult time. As many of you know our beautiful mom went to heaven on September 1st, so this will be our first holiday without her. We miss her, but absolutely know that she is here with us, and for those that have lost a loved one, please know that they will be with you this Thanksgiving. It is in the small moments where we find love and happiness, a smile or happy memory. We must choose to be happy, to go on, and know that our loved ones are so happy in heaven! But also, know that it is ok to feel sadness, and it is ok to miss them. I will always miss my beautiful mom. Enjoy this special holiday. Please listen to my free podcast above, I hope it brings you peace this Thanksgiving. I talk about my life, my mom, and having Thanksgiving without her, and give you some tips that will help you get through. May God bless you and your loved ones. Happy Thanksgiving.
Its ok to be who you are. Its ok to be a good person. Please don’t hide from wanting to be the person who you are truly meant to be. And please don’t hold back the love that is inside of you. This world needs more people just like you, and the world needs your love.
What do you think would happen if you smiled at a stranger, or even gave a compliment. Just think of how you feel when it happens to you. It makes you feel great! Now it is your turn to pass those good feelings on to someone else by doing something kind. You can start right now by just saying a prayer for someone, and then follow it up by a text or a phone call letting them know you’re thinking of them, and praying for them. Or next time you step out of your home, or you are at work, or the grocery store, hold the door, or compliment someone on their nice outfit, or jewelry. You will light up their day, and your light will shine brighter.
The world needs you, just who you are. We are all unique, and we all have our own unique gifts from God, and they are given to us for a purpose, so use them, and don’t be afraid to be who you truly are. Please know that you are loved, and that it is ok to love.
