Thanksgiving Day is the time when family gets together mainly giving thanks to all the blessings received the whole year through. To me it is also a celebration of delicious food including turkey, dressing, sauerkraut, green beans casserole, cranberry sauce, sweet potato casserole, ham, and the like.
Today, our family is celebrating Thanksgiving Day here at my husband’s parents’ house. Everyone in my husband’s family is here to join the family’s traditional dinner. My toddler is enjoying the company of her aunts, uncles, and cousins, too. We are blessed with a beautiful weather so the kids are playing outside most of the time.
As I was sending my greetings to my friends on Facebook who are residing in the US, one of them is also going to the Philippines for a vacation. She’s asking me if I already bought some homecoming gifts. I told her I am not 100% done yet. There are still some knick-knacks that I have to buy for my other cousins back home. My friend suggested that if I’d like to buy some accessories for them, I should buy them online to save time and money. Fashion jewelry such as necklaces, handmade bracelets, and earrings like feather earrings are mostly likely affordable and very light to be placed in the luggage. In addition, my girl cousins love to accessorize so they would be happy to received such things. Well, that made me think.
On the other hand, everyone is having a great time as usual. We celebrate Thanksgiving with joy and a grateful heart. For God is always providing each and everyone blessings every day.
