We really had a wonderful thanksgiving with some of the family yesterday. It’s always nice when you can come together and just enjoy each other’s company. Of course we were working on CP time lol, but that’s what we expected. The food we had was absolutely amazing no complaints about anything. Everything was cooked with expertise. The sternos were lit and the food was hot. Unfortunately I was so ready to dig in reluctantly I forgot to get pics of the food. But I must say my cousin did a great job hosting thanksgiving dinner this year.
It’s really great when you see family members that you haven’t seen in a while. Sure it’s nice that we have social media nowadays, and we can see that our love ones are alive and well and see what they’re up to lately. But social media doesn’t come anywhere close to actually seeing everyone in person, the smiles on their faces, the hugs and kisses on the cheek, that’s what makes it special. Catching up having good conversation is something you can definitely appreciate.
No we can never get these moments back that’s why they are so important. Grab a hold of every moment and don’t let go. Capture them and place them in your heart, so that when and if you should run into not so happy times you will have these moments to remind you of the good times. Having these moments to reflect on make a world of difference. Thoughts of good times may strengthen you, and encourage you and perhaps help you get over sadness and loneliness, and maybe depression.
My son is the smallest one in the picture with the black sweater on. I’m teaching him the value of family whether he wants to know it or not he doesn’t have a choice in the matter. Most of the children these days would much rather be anywhere besides home, or stay at home and not go to family gatherings because somewhere else always appears to be much more glamorous. Also modern technology has crept in unaware and has taken the place of family time.Where families used to sit down at the dinner table and have dinner, or have family discussions or just spend quality time, it’s now been replaced with electronics, like the television, games, etc. It’s important that we enforce and reinforce family values because they’re what’s important.
About my cousin, he has on the red and blue shirt, he is amazing and always the life of the party. If you want a clean wholesome good ole time then he’s your guy. He has the greatest personality ever, and when your around him you can expect to sing, and dance and laugh and just be happy because that’s what he will bring to the table. He has great energy and if you met him you would love his spirit. We really couldn’t have chosen a better place to go this thanksgiving.
So I say work, take care of business, and do whatever you need to do but don’t forget to take time out for recreation have fun and laugh, laugh until it hurts.
“A day without laughter is a day wasted.” Charlie Chaplin
“Life’s better when you’re laughing.”
“Laughter is poison to fear.” George R.R. Martin
“There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor.”
“I have not seen anyone dying of laughter, but I know millions who are dying because they are not laughing.”
Remember to be happy and keep your heart glad, keep your joy, because the world didn’t give it to you and the world can’t take it away.
“These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full.”John 15:11 ASVhttp://bible.com/12/jhn.15.11.asv
1. Proverbs 17:22 A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.
2. Proverbs 15:13 A joyful heart makes a cheerful face, but with a heartache comes depression.
3. Proverbs 15:15 For the despondent, every day brings trouble; for the happy heart, life is a continual feast.
Never stop creating the good times for yourself, or with family and friends. Life is not that serious. Yes life happens and things happen but it’s the good times that will bring you joy.
I posted this song so that where ever you are you can stop for just a moment to put a little pep in your two step, a little grove in your move and remember to keep the balance in your life and create those good times!
