Thanksgiving might not go the way you want. This whole year hasn’t gone as planned. Let’s struggle well this Thanksgiving by blessing our mother-in-laws and our difficult cousins and our rude grandpas by JUST being happy to be there. Or maybe you are skipping Thanksgiving this year or turning it on it’s head and ordering Domino’s. Struggle well through that! 

Consider yourself challenged, friend. In response to every Thanksgiving decision or plan change or food mishap; have a perspective shift towards grace. Practice in the mirror responding “That’s perfect“ to anything that you think might be coming your way. Let’s make it a year to remember!
