This is the perfect time of the year for family traditions! I was very moved by my daughter’s Facebook post on Thanksgiving Day. She wrote, “I’m thankful for family and for family traditions. I know traditions aren’t always good, but I’m thankful for the ones that surround the holidays in my family. They give a sense of stability each year and something to look forward to. Even though we are celebrating tomorrow, the whole family will be here! And Mammaw is here until Christmas! God has blessed us with so much and I’m truly thankful! He is always faithful to provide for us, sometimes in unlikely ways. I can’t wait until next year, when we get to show our new nephew and three new nieces our traditions and be thankful together! God is so good! I love you all, family!” I wholeheartedly agree with her!
Below are photos from our ‘traditional’ Thanksgiving weekend. And by the way, there was really nothing very healthy on our menu for our Thanksgiving meal! Although I didn’t overdo it on the sweets, I did overeat a bit and boy was I miserable! However, I am committed to getting back on my healthy eating plan and thankful I didn’t have a significant weight gain. I am even more thankful for my beautiful family and our memory-filled time together.
“O give thanks unto The Lord for He is good!”
Do you have family traditions? I would love for you to comment.
Healthy, wealthy and wise tip for today: Be sure to eat within one hour of rising each morning. Eat every three hours and eat at the same time everyday. This will balance your hormones and blood sugar levels. However, make sure what you are eating is healthy!
