#November – a time to #bethankful. As Halloween and October have come to a close, I look forward
to the month of #November. For me, it is
a time to #bethankful! Don’t get me
wrong, I am #thankful for each and every day, this time of year though, I think,
I am more aware or at least I try to be. I have asked my daughter each day this month
what she is #thankful for today. So far,
she has told me - family, her dogs (all 4 of them) and life! I loved her third one – life!
I am #thankful for my health, so I can live each day to its
fullest, for my family…my daughter whom I love dearly and who inspires me every
day, for my husband, whom I love, cherish and am #grateful for his flexibility
with me and the perfect fall day yesterday!
My daughter and I spent the afternoon at the park. It was cool with a gentle wind, but sunny to
keep us warm. We played kickball,
basketball (she made her first 3 basketball free throws ever...granny shots on a regulation net-pretty
exciting for her) rode bikes and scooters, rolled down hills, did life size
shadow puppets and blew bubbles and chased after them. What an awesome day we had, we had not spent a
day like that in a long time and it was wonderful just to relax, hang out and
play. Not to mention playing is great
for you whether you’re 6 or any age!
As we proceed into the month of #November, I will relish each
moment of time. Whether it is interacting with my daughter, husband, family,
friends or following my dreams. Take
some time today to reflect on your life and everything you are #thankful for in
your life. #bethankful
Talk with your kids to see
what they are #thankful for, teach them the importance of #gratitude. Remember to make the time and take the time
to spend with your kids, loved ones or yourself this #November. Create new memories, new traditions, follow
old traditions and savor each and every one. I have some wonderful ideas for crafts, recipes
and to #bethankful, starting with what to do with those pumpkins that didn't get decorated or carved this year...so check back often.
All of my best Dyan
