If you live in America, Happy Thanksgiving Day to you!
If you live anywhere else in the world, please remember: giving thanks for people in America doesn’t only happen during Thanksgiving Day. It’s just that for Americans, this day is very special in their lives. There is a significant meaning as to why they have this family holiday is celebrated. If you want to dig in, you can read some facts here.
Meanwhile, as my fifth post for the series, redundant I may sound if I say I am so thankful for every blessing in my life– big and small. And every trials, too, because they’re a part of my growth, this time, God has blessed me with an even more special things that I dare not miss mentioning.
First off, my little daughter Tiara is officially 16 months old today. Yep, she is a 28th of the month baby. So today, Thanksgiving means a lot because we celebrate her birth date. Like how her big sister describes her in this post, this little joyful soul of ours makes our day even more beautiful. With her presence in our lives, it is so much easier to smile instead of frown, to rejoice instead of sulking ourselves in one corner, and to be more patient in everything. Thank God for the gift of life!
One second blessing that makes me feel so ecstatic today is God’s miraculous providence to myself: I got hired in a job that I applied to exactly a week ago today! Yep, after only 7 days, I received a mail last night informing me that the Web and Crowdsourcing Consultant position is being offered to me. I I was so overwhelmed when I read it last night that I found myself in tears a little bit. This will entail a new changes in my schedule once again and the time management project that has been roughly followed this past couple of weeks will be put to a test once again.
But, I am taking the challenge! When God provided these things to me, it only means that He knew I can do it! HAH! Good luck to me!
Today is indeed a very blessed day for us, especially for me. We were gonna celebrate today by dining out but to no avail! We roamed around town earlier but found no dining place that’s opened. So, I just went to one of my favorite stores with fresh deli/food sections and ordered some yummies there. With fried chicken, Triz still exclaimed this is her best Thanksgiving Day, ever! And yes, she does say that every year!
