I have been observing thanksgiving since the time I started working in a call center. I don't really celebrate with a turkey, (lol) because we don't have thanksgiving here in PH on our calendar as holiday. But it's always good to just take that day to be thankful for everything. Not that it should only be the day to thank God, we should thank Him everyday for the air we breathe, for the food we eat and for everything we received from God. I'm sure if we are contented with what we have, we will realize that what we have can be more than enough.
|I am most thankful for my family who is everything to me and is the reason I continue to work hard.|
I thank God for my unexpected time off at work. Unexpected because it was just announce very recently. Since most of my workmates requested for a time off, our boss decided to just close on thanksgiving. And I'm happy she did, even if that means it's a large chunk of money that will be taken out from my pay, that is still something I can spend with Nate and that I can take with me forever because a time spent with someone you love can never be paid by money.
So for this years thanksgiving, this is my shout out (taken from my FB status):
Thank God for my unexpected "unpaid" off, hahaha! I had a time well spent with Nate, this is where our feet took us yesterday. Plus, I always love an extra night of sleep with him! Which means my unpaid off can't really be paid by money, because I used it for something priceless. hehe. Happy thanksgiving to all my friends in US!
I am thankful for God's grace and salvation that he's given. I am thankful for the job that I have, because of that we have a support for our financial needs. I am thankful for this wonderful world of blogging where I can freely write what I want to say. I am thankful for my son who is the reason why we strive harder. I am thankful for my dearest Dane who works from miles away in order for us to be able to save for our future, he's lonely and we miss him so much but he's trying his best to get himself busy at work so he won't be very sad. I am thankful because he's the person that God gave me to spend the rest of my life with. I am thankful for every little things that we have and we can enjoy. I am thankful for everything.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING! ENJOY THIS DAY WITH OUR WITHOUT A TURKEY! :)
