Thanksgiving is my holiday. There’s nothing I love more than spending a full week preparing to create a beautiful meal for family and friends. Unfortunately, it’ can be difficult to focus on all of the things I’m thankful for, when my husband is not here to enjoy them with me.
This month our tribe is focused on finding gratitude even in the midst of the deployment! We’ll be learning to identify and acknowledge life’s little moments that bring us joy. Our ability to thrive during deployments is highly affected by how we interpret those things happening around us daily. When we choose to look through a lens of gratitude we are able to recognize and appreciate the many ways that we are surrounded by beauty and love in this season.
With intention and awareness, deployment can be a season that teaches us to cultivate an attitude of gratitude amid challenging circumstances!
