Happy (one day late) American Thanksgiving everyone! Since I'm Canadian, my Thanksgiving was a month ago! However, that doesn't stop me from having an attitude of joy and thankfulness and celebrating with my American friends! I'm actually pretty glad that there's two different Thanksgivings - it gives me twice the chances to celebrate!
In truth, we should be thankful every day of the year- but having a special day to recognize it is an absolutely wonderful thing.
So, today I felt like doing a simple post of positivity. Things I love, things I appreciate, and things I find amusing!
BUT FIRST, YIKES SO MANY PEOPLE LOOKING TO GET THE NEW SPIKES
Unrelated note: isn't it funny how the sample mannequin is a Snow Leopard but there's no Snow Leopard mannequin in the store yet?
Ahem. Carrying on: I am thankful for all my friends - on AJ and in real life. Friends are able to shape who we are, support us in our best and at our worst, and make many lasting memories. I am grateful for all of you here, and I can't wait to meet more friends in the future! I love you all. Here's to many great experiences!
I'm also thankful for my family! They support me in all I do, and I wouldn't be the same person without them. Hey- I wouldn't even be around without them!
I'm thankful for laughter. There's no feeling that can quite match laughing hard and loud with people you love. In contrast, sometimes sitting quietly side by side can mean just as much- and that's a beautiful thing.
There's so much beauty all around us- even if we forget about it sometimes. The steam rising up from your mug of hot chocolate, the way your loved ones always know how to cheer you up, the way dew sits on a blade of grass in the morning, the vibrancy of the sunrise, the intricate details in fall leaves and flower petals, and the way music can touch your very soul. All are beautiful and I am thankful for them all!
Sometimes we get so wrapped up in things that we tend to forget to just relax a little. Enjoy these beautiful things - the Lord wishes it so! All these wonderful things are created in God's divine wish - just as you are in his image. The colours, the sights, the sounds. Be honourable and thankful in all you do~!
Speaking of colours- do you think there are still colours that haven't been discovered? I went to a paint shop a while back and I'm always amazed by how many different colours there are- each one subtly different - no two exactly the same. Perhaps we are that way too - created specially; some of us are alike in some ways, but we all have our subtle unique differences that make us special.
Hm, this post went places. We started out with thankfulness, and now I'm relating paint colours to people, haha! Maybe I should get some more sleep...
In all seriousness - even though this is a day late I urge you to see the beauty in life and appreciate it regardless of whether it is Thanksgiving or not. What do you find beautiful? Tell me in the comments below- I would love to know!
Have a wonderful day my friends!
