I have to say, somedays are harder than others. Its been several months since I sat down and wrote a blog. With work, kids school, endless boys soccer games and daughters high school cheer, homework, sick kids, eating right (or wrong), working out (or not), marriage (yep, he's still my high school sweet heart), date night (??), friends (the ones you wave at while driving by at school), school latte cart , church, house cleaning (yuck), yard work (double yuck), paying bills, buying groceries and cooking (that thing my kids see my mom do). But today, regardless of our situation in life, we feel the need to be Superman or Wonder Woman. Who would ever have time to decorate your home for the holidays or cook a turkey (Whole Foods sells cooked turkeys BTW), let alone taking the time to be thankful? I was going to post something about decorating your home for Thanksgiving - but that seems so unimportant today. As I take a deep breath and fret over my busy schedule, I am reminded over and over of my many blessings. I am surrounded every day by the very things that keep my life crazy busy, but also make my life so great. My kids, my husband, my parents and siblings, my great friends, our good health (so extra thankful), our home, my job & our community. Every day, I get to help people create things they love through interior design projects - something that I am very thankful for. This Thanksgiving, take the time to look around and be thankful for all you have. There are so many people in need in our community this season - some need basics like food and shelter, others need a helping hand, support and care. If you're blessed as we have been, take the time to give back to others and to your community. Give where you can and what you can. Don't have the resources? Donate your time. Don't have time? Donate that chair or table in the corner you don't like anymore. (I can help you replace it anyway - it doesn't match your walls) It will make you feel great, no matter your circumstances and will help so many that are truly in need.
Some ideas for giving back this Thanksgiving.
Have furniture, clothing or home items to donate?
