Oh, Thanksgiving. As a child, I can remember waking up to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Going to Grandma’s house for dinner; having to sit at the kids table while wishing I was old enough to sit at the big table. All the cousins went outside after dinner and played in the leaves while the adults watched football. After they played for a while, we all dived in for seconds of turkey and all the sides, then topped it off with a piece of pumpkin pie with the perfect amount of Cool Whip on top. Then the inevitable, getting hit with a horrible case of Turkey Coma Syndrome, where the only cure is a nice Thanksgiving Day nap.

In today’s busy world, life can be a little cluttered. Between crazy schedules, screaming kids, emails to reply to, and cell phones going off with calls and text messages, it can be challenging to remember to take a breath, be happy, and remain truly thankful.

Thanksgiving is about two things; family and remembering to be thankful. So, enjoy those family times this year and try to remember that memories are being made. Take time to cherish this family time because, especially with grandparents, we don’t get to keep them with us forever. And be thankful for the little things. Make a concious effort to have an attitude of gratefulness. We all have something to be thankful for. If you’re reading this, I am assume you have a computer or smart phone, and most likely a job and a house to live in. That alone is more than some people in this world have.

So as you all sit around the table this year, take a deep breath, stop, and listen to the funny stories everyone is sharing. Try to simply enjoy each other’s company.

I'm Jennifer, I'm just a regular gal. Newly married and an employee at Elga Credit Union. I love to go on cruises and travel the world. When I'm not doing that I'm spending quality time with those I love. A favorite quote of mine is “To the world you may be one person but to one person you may be the world.” I had a few key people that really influenced my life by just being intentional in their actions. I try to pay that forward every day of my life.
