LIFE ★ TURKEY IS A FUNNY WORD
Being that Thanksgiving is just around the corner, it got
me thinking... Thinking about things in general. I almost
feel as if it could be seen as a new year in many ways. You
know, start over, make some resolutions.. what do you
I honestly just feel grateful for the mere fact that I am
alive. Something as simple as being alive can be so easily
taken advantage of. I find I get caught up being thankful
for bigger things (still important of course) but what
about just being alive? That's pretty major. And by alive, I
really mean healthy. Btw - people who are continually
grateful are generally in better health than those who
aren't. Something to ponder.
There are lots of ways one could celebrate Thanksgiving
on the actual day:
Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade
Watch the football game
Skating rink at Bryant Park
5K Turkey trot at Prospect Park
Or just keep to the tradition and eat an insane amount of
food surrounded by people who you call family and/or
friends - aka people you love. Now, as you already know,
my immediate family members are not in NY, which makes
this a challenge. I do, however, love a tradition and try to
get together with whatever family members are local at
the time and/or close friends who have basically become
my family -
you know who you are...
I thought of a new idea that I would like to share with y'all.
During this time of year, it can be lonely for some. So I
thought, hey why not phone someone that I haven't
to in a long time? Someone that for whatever reason, I've
just lost touch with. Make that call. Be brave. Send them
love and warm wishes over the holiday. Let them know
someone cares and is thinking of them. Spread the love
for a better world!
No go on, get your list going - who are you going to call?
(NOT TEXT!) Oh, and btw - this is THE. PERFECT. DRESS
for those dreaded family pictures... You'll look fab. Plus
theres plenty of room for that turkey belly.
Turkey is a funny word
