Around Thanksgiving, people proclaim we should be thankful every day, not just on a holiday. The same goes for Love - Valentines Day, and Giving - Christmas. But the reality of life is, the every day hustle and bustle of life can make us forget, or rather, not focus on being loving, giving, or thankful. Holidays are great opportunities to refocus on those things.
Today is my four year wedding anniversary ::twerks:: and all week leading up to today I've been thinking about how wonderful our lives and marriage is, and how blessed I am to have him. It's a blessing every day, but the way life is set up I don't have the opportunity to celebrate it every day, or think on it every day.
Holidays, anniversaries and occasions offer us the chance to celebrate the things we don't always get to daily. Embrace that!
