Hey, friends! How is everyone in blogland? I know due to the holiday we are not that much active in blogland. I was not active due to that little sick little girl who is feeling much better now. Thank you for all your prayers!
First Thanksgiving Without Family:
For us, this Thanksgiving is not that exciting, as we moved this year and our family (my in-laws) live in Wisconsin. We are still settling down and not able to go back to visit. We used to go to my mother-in-law’s or sister in law’s house for Thanksgiving.
This feels so weird that we are just going to stay home and going to prep our own food. Maybe it’s not a big deal for a lot of people, but for us, it’s sad.
My husband’s family was one of the big reasons I never thought of leaving Wisconsin as I was thinking that at least his family is close to us. God only knows the best though. We had no idea about moving to Portland, and out of the blue, I got this job. We wrapped up everything and moved.
I am Thankful For:
God, family, health, and tons of new friends.
If we would have never moved, I would have never started this blog as I was on call every week and my schedule was always messed up. In fact, this is the first Thanksgiving that I am not on call, it feels so wonderful to stay at home with my family. Although I was helping people save their lives I was missing out on a lot of things always being on call on the holidays. This is the phenomena of people who work in health care regardless of your title.I hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving with your families! We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in Pakistan, so this is the cultural holiday I have adopted ever since I moved to the USA and I love it.
Drop me a line about your Thanksgiving. I would love to hear what are you up to!
