Thanksgiving words

Thanksgiving is my most favorite holiday and this year did not disappoint. It was simple and perfect making memories with best friends and of course family.

As I wrote before the past few weeks were kind of funky for me but things turned around Wednesday in the best way. I went back to one of my favorite workouts, Burncycle, after realizing that I had put it on the back burner for the past couple weeks. My favorite instructor, and friend, Jessi was teaching and she kicked me back into shape- mentally. She always puts things into perspective and I realized how reliant I am on her classes, her coaching and her mindfulness. I do not consider myself a 'hokey' yogi type, and her classes are not for the faint of heart. But they do kind of wake me up mentally and allow for some reflecting and personal time to work through my own thoughts and feelings. I was really missing that the past few weeks and she put me back into a really good place.

With that, I woke up Thanksgiving morning and scrolled through my instagram feed and found a post from one of my #momcrushes Latonya. She is a beautiful writer, photographer, wife, mother, being and I paused on her image and words in honor of Thanksgiving:

We are blessed today, with enough to eat, May we be grateful. We are blessed with clothes to wear, May we be grateful. We are blessed with shelter from the elements, May we be grateful. We are very well blessed today. May we remember that there are many people who do not have these blessings. May we be grateful enough to help others when we can.

The perfect Thanksgiving blessing I like the idea that I can learn and memorize this so I can say it to myself and write it to others on the inside of a greeting card or recite in moments of gratitude and celebration. Hope you had a special Thanksgiving holiday and long weekend. Will be back later this week with a post about the two things I wore every single day this weekend.
