Monday Motivation: Thankful for the Small Things

Can you believe that it is already time for Thanksgiving??  I am seriously having a hard time believing that it is already here.  It seems like I have been SO busy and since I am constantly on the run the holidays have caught me by surprise!  But I AM thankful for a week that reminds me to slow down and express my gratitude for the small things I have.  I have a lot to be thankful for and this year especially I have realized that life doesn’t have to be perfect or always go the way we plan to be wonderful.  And I am so thankful for the small day-to-day things that make life fun and exciting.  I’m trying to be better at slowing down and having the opportunity for more of those little moments with my kids.

So instead, we had a party! I’ve tried to make it a tradition on days like today to celebrate those who have passed on with a recipe that reminds me of them.  Grandpa made up Glen’s Great Zesty Trail Drive Goulash and submitted it into a beef cook-off competition.  He won the “most creative” award. 🙂  It still makes me smile to remember how proud he was of this recipe.  You have to click on the link just so you can read his commentary before and after his recipe.  It might not be a recipe fit for Pinterest but he was always good for a laugh. We looked through a memory book of him, sang happy birthday and had cake, […]
