OT - Thankful Tuesday
Yes, it's Tuesday. But Thursday is a holiday so I'm ahead of the game.
During the holiday season, there always seems to be so much added stress. It can be very easy to get lost in all of the madness. Nothing like more pressure when you're already feeling squished, huh? Don't get too caught up in the hustle and bustle to forget what is truly important to you and yours. Most especially, to your health - both physical and mental. Take a minute or three and reflect. WTH, take half a day.
While I am always grateful for the common things in life (home, car, job, etc...), today I want to focus on people for whom I am thankful:
- My DH. He is not often a man of many words and he is certainly not one for flowery romanticism. But he loves me deeply and shows it in countless ways. There are times I cannot see what's virtually right in front of me. But my DH can and he helps me make the decisions that are best for me and my sanity.
- My family. In terrible times, we pull together. For us Finns, blood is most definitely thicker than water and the call of that family blood is strong. We don't always get along - hell, sometimes we don't even like each other - but when the chips are down, we all know that it takes only one phone call to have family at your side. No questions, no judgement. Just lots of love and support.
- My online family. That means YOU. You people amaze me. Yeah, you can frustrate me, too. Just like my blood family. The comments on the blog I posted yesterday, the PMs and personal emals I received. All of the support, the kind words, the regard... You truly humble me. I am very thankful for you.
From my home to yours, I wish you Happy Thanksgiving and hope your day is filled with love and blessings.
