I’m Thankful For You!MY VIEWS | Nirasha Jaganath | November 26, 2009 at 9:19 pm
Thanksgiving is quite different in my home. Without a turkey to boot being that ours is a vegetarian home, it is difficult to gain the common image portrayed of what Thanksgiving is. Of course the thought of what you are are thankful for is a good angle to focus on. I have been struggling to find that zone to be thankful for something this Thanksgiving especially since we have no job for the past 3 months. I know things could be worse but I also know it could be better.
While I see everyone gear up for Black Friday sales I feel a tinge of envy. It is not that I am a big shopper but there is a difference to not wanting to go shopping compared to knowing you can’t afford to go shopping. In fact the holidays plain suck for me at this time. I know, I know, I sound like a party pooper but empty pockets and family far away is enough to challenge the even the most optimistic of souls.
But there is a rainbow. No, no job yet, I promise to be screaming off the the mountaintops when that does happen, but my readers have been my beacon of hope. Instead of fretting every night over our predicament, I spend hours on running the Mommy Niri blog. Yes, it earns me absolutely no money but it gives me purpose. Every time a reader leaves a comment here on my blog or on my fanpage it delights me to no end to know that someone out there actually reads my blog. By reading my blog you have allowed me into your home, and bring me a glimmer of hope in mine. Thank you!
