Thanksgiving Day here in the states is just one week away.
Whether you are hosting or cooking a dish, showing up to someone's home or going out for dinner...
There is always a fair amount of stress that goes along with this event...
I believe because it marks the beginning of the holiday season.
I have made a promise to myself and my husband that I will not allow commercialism to interfere with what I am most thankful for.
PERFECTIONISM to come
between me and the calm of the gray skies and the crisp air.
I have given my word that we will NOT over spend or over book.
With my whole heart I am making a difference in the lives of my sons by making the decision to NOT get caught up or turned on by what public relations or marketing media dictate.
I will not.
I have decided.
Decision is made.
Henry would like to say a few words right now:
"An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day."
"Friends... they cherish one another's hopes. They are kind to one another's dreams."
"Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads."
"Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each."
-Henry David Thoreau
Bless you all,
