Today I was asked to set the table for our Thanksgiving Day dinner. I've never set it by myself before, and this was kind of a big deal for me.
Oprah says that "love is in the details", so I wanted to make sure that everything was just perfect for my family.
We used the good plates and the good silver. I went online and looked up setting the table for a formal dinner to make sure that I was doing everything right. I also added some personal touches.
Before we brought out the food, I sat down for a moment alone to reflect. At Thanksgiving dinner, my family always discusses all of the things that we are thankful for. I wanted to get my thoughts together.
Even though things may not always go my way, I know that I am blessed. I am so thankful for my family and friends and for all of the love and support that I have in my life.
I am thankful for those who encourage my creativity. I'm thankful for those who read my words and who have kind things to say. I am thankful for those who offer criticism and push me to strive to improve. I am thankful for those who can identify with my struggles. I am thankful for those who laugh at my jokes. I am just so very, very thankful.
