Thanksgiving & Gratitude

I had a long and lovely holiday weekend! It was filled with lots of good food, conversations and bike riding fun. On Thanksgiving day, we pedaled into Yreka and volunteered at a soup kitchen serving and delivering Thanksgiving dinner to seniors in need. We spent the rest of the day hanging out with family. And we topped off the weekend with a holiday parade and lots of reading. Over the weekend, I thought a lot about gratitude because I was missing my dad and writing a gratitude list helped me feel less sad. I’ve discovered that writing a gratitude list, for five to ten minutes everyday, brings joy and happiness into my life.

Below is a portion of my gratitude list that I wrote during the holiday. I also included a few photos too.

It’s been such a sad and happy year and I’m so grateful for my mom’s friendship and love. She is beautiful.


I’m grateful for a lovely Thanksgiving evening filled with good food, football games, and awesome photo opportunities.
