With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, I have been hesitant to make any plans. Before my mother passed away last December my two sisters and I and our families would get together for lunch for food and fellowship. Today I was hit with reality again that it was time to make plans or at least make the decision to not make any. I chose the latter.
Having had to deal with a death, covid and now the results of a fraudulent election just does not add up to Thanksgiving for me. Life does go on but right now it is difficult at best to know what that will look like.
Prayerfully God has a plan. While holidays have never been my thing…I just had to give myself permission to take a “break”. It’s not going to bring my mother back, dissolve covid or right the wrong of a deceitful man but it gives me time to be me and to explore my options.
Sometimes it is ok to not do what is expected. There will be more Thanksgivings and holidays for my sisters and I.
Where will I be on Thanksgiving? I am making no plans. Maybe something exciting or just a quiet day at home. Either way I will be blessed.
Have a great day. Hug someone today….even if you have to do it with a mask.
