I’m not a holiday person (I’ve tried, but I’m just not)
Most times, holidays annoy me
There’s often too much hoopla surrounding them
And I don’t like the stress they can create.
But I realize I’m a creature of habit
That does best with a pause in the rhythm of life
An interruption to my normal schedule
To force me to stop, consider and reflect.
So this Thanksgiving day, I pause
And consider all the good things in my life
Life isn’t perfect, but its feeling lighter
As I realize the many things I have to be thankful for!
