Six Words Worth Repeating During the Thanksgiving Season

wordsI’m getting a little bit crazy with the holidays coming.

Calendar getting full… schedule time with friends… ministry is busy… thinking about turkeys—the ones on sale… stuffed or unstuffed this year?.. remember to find recipes… make list of ingredients… pull fall decoration boxes from garage… take a deep breath… Christmas boxes are next to them.

Say it isn’t so. Really?

It is obvious that my mind is like a merry-go-round, whirling with things to do. You are probably not far behind me. Let’s take a minute from this craziness before it consumes us. You and I both know there is so much more than the tasks and to-do lists of the holidays.

Simply put, Thanksgiving is all about being thankful.

I stop and get off the high horse I am riding. I refocus from doing to being. I let my thoughts drift to the people who matter in my life. My heart begins to overflow with thankfulness. My mind is flooded with gratitude. I need to tell them how much they mean to me. I need to share what I feel through my words, in the midst of showing them I care through my actions.

This is how I will begin…

I LOVE you because…

I APPRECIATE you for…

I VALUE you because…

I ADMIRE you because…

I RESPECT you for….

THANK YOU for…

How about you? Now is the perfect time to say what you’ve been meaning to say for a long time—to your spouse, your children, your family, and your friends.

From my heart to yours,

Susan
