Grateful

Sometimes I feel that we all go from Halloween straight to Christmas, leaving another important holiday in the dark. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays--mostly because of my Grandma's delicious sweet potato puffs! It's also my favorite because it really helps me put into focus what is truly important in life--family.

It will be another family holiday without my brother. He's still serving in Afghanistan in the Army. I feel like I have to cherish these holidays that much more since he's unable to be with us. All the family traditions and stories are always an important part of my life that I hold dear to my heart every Thanksgiving.

My family has a table cloth that we use every Thanksgiving and every year we write on it what we are grateful for. It's a really cool thing to see that table cloth come out at Thanksgiving and read the past entries. It's become a very unique family heirloom.

So don't forget about Thanksgiving and what you are truly grateful for in life.
