Happy Thanksgiving everyone! S0 this is the day that you reflect and dwell on the things life has blessed you with that you may have taken for granted throughout the year right? You have awoken, you have food to eat, you have a roof over your head, and loving family. All major reasons to be thankful I definitely agree. Those were my usual thankful thoughts, and now a days I add my super cute kid and Swaggalicious mom to the menu. For me, this Thanksgiving is a little different. I am still thankful to be able to receive the things some people could only dream of, but this thanksgiving, I am thankful for this new mindset that has taken over me. Not sure if its a mix of mental exhaustion of being black in America, being a mother and wanting my child to grow up in an environment filled with peace and love or if I am actually tapping into my God giving gifts but..YO GIRL IS WOKE! I am thankful for this motivation!! I am thankful to have the will and fire in my heart to want to do better in this place we call HOME. I am thankful that I am not quiet and don’t hold my tongue or ignore what is happening in this world. I am thankful I had the courage to start this blog and even more thankful for the people that cheered me on to do it along with my 3-4 faithful readers (Hey YAL!!!). LOL. I am thankful that I feel that I have inspired someone somewhere to do something. I am just so thankful and eager to see what the new year has in store for me and I am thankful that I can share my gifts with the world.
I want to wish all my readers a blessed and safe thanksgiving and urge you to think and be thankful for more than just your Mama’s Sweet Potato Pie this year. Be Thankful for being YOU!
