Happy Holidays!

thanksgiving-dinner-table-hd-wallpapersI’m already in the mood for the Holidays. And no I don’t celebrate Halloween, but I am looking forward to Thanksgiving this year. When I looked up the date for Thanksgiving this year, I was pleasantly surprised to see that this Thanksgiving would also be my birthday! This happens every 6 years or so.

I’m going to be proactive and positive this year. For the last eight years I have been separated from the majority of family, but this year I hope to be near more family. I’m not going to lie though. My ideal Thanksgiving would be in my own kitchen (a big one) cooking for family and friends and maybe even a boyfriend. 😉

The lady who I am currently residing with has been eating good. I have been doing a lot of cooking, which is something I had not been doing too much of until I moved here. But honestly, I enjoy cooking so much and I don’t mean to brag, but I am a good home cook. I’ve been cooking Thanksgiving dinners since I was a teenager. I took over the cooking from my mom, years ago. She was tired of cooking and I took the crown. I don’t mean to be a downer, but once you lose your mother, it seems your holiday’s are NEVER the same. But that is why I want to create my own memories.

To me holiday’s are about family, friends and love! I pray that everyone will have a joy filled Holiday season! And love your family!

1 Corinthians 13:4-6

New International Version (NIV)

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
