The countdown to Thanksgiving is on.....and I am clearly not ready. As I mentioned before, this will be my first time hosting Thanksgiving at my house and I am simply overwhelmed. Nobody told me how difficult this would be. We have relatives coming from out of town and almost all of them will be crashing at our house. I have no idea where to stash 14 people in our 3 bedroom house. Also, we don't have enough dishes to serve 18 people....Somewhere in the midst of all this hustle and bustle I have lost the true spirit of the holiday and the reason we celebrate it. The name itself says it all "Thanksgiving". It is a time to gather with people that we love and to break bread and Thank God for all the blessings that he has given us. My spirit of gratitude has been sorely lacking and I think it is time for me to refresh my spirit and look at this holiday from a different perspective. So my house and food will not be Martha Stewart worthy; it doesn't matter. As long as I have another day to celebrate with my husband and my family, then I will be grateful. So how do the rest of you get through this craziness called "The Holiday Season"?
