Reflecting On November

November is coming to an end...

Generally, we consider November to be a month to be thankful, to share what we are thankful for, to give thanks, and participate in the Thanksgiving celebrations.

I had quite an enjoyable Thanksgiving.  It was quiet and uneventful; allowing time for much needed thought and reflection.

Thanksgiving Centerpiece

This Thanksgiving is the first time I didn't roast a whole turkey, or bake any pies.  Since it was only going to be one of my children, and my mother; I opted to make a turkey breast in the crock pot, and purchase the pies.  The turkey was wonderful, very moist and tasty.  (Note to self:  Next year bake your pies!)

The month, of November, was quite life changing for me, to say the least!  Between moving and starting a new job at the end of October, not to mention the pending divorce... A lot has been going on in my life.

Reflecting on this month, as it comes to an end, I sit back and realize how blessed I am.  Everything has fallen into place so beautifully, despite it all falling apart a short month ago.

Looking back, I can truly say, everything happens for a reason...

Everything Happens for a Reason

At the time when things are falling apart, it may not make any sense.  If you have faith, and hope, it will all fall into place, as it is planned.

What are you thankful for?  Have you been through a tough time and realized down the road, what came to be was much better than what was?  I would love to hear from you.

Until next time...

           Enjoy Life!
