If you have been on Facebook, you will notice that a lot of people are participating in 30 days of thankfulness posts. I’ve noticed a few of my social media friends writing thankful post. I have so many things to be thankful for that I could fill up this entire page and it would extend to additional pages. This year, my cousin and his wife hosted our family for Thanksgiving. I enjoyed myself immensely. I felt blessed to be with my older and younger cousins, new family members and of course the Elders. We prayed, laughed, talked, hugged and everyone went around the room stating one thing that they were thankful for. I was thankful for being able to spend time with my love ones and to create new memories. I felt contentment in my heart. This was the first year that I decided not to leave Thanksgiving dinner, to attend Black Friday. I wanted to capture every moment and to continue to replay, in my mind, the continuous laughter that filled the room. According to dictionary.com, contentment is a “state of satisfaction or happiness.” Spending time with my family completely satisfied the loneliness that I sometimes feel as a single woman. I understood why God created family. Family isn’t always related by blood but they have kindred spirits. They are the people we are divinely connected to. These are the people who care less about occupations, job titles or your social economic status. They love you with all of your flaws. They encourage and hug you! This year, I’m so thankful for family and friends! I love to shop but this year, I found peace and joy speaking life to the Millennials. What are you Thankful for?
