Let us give thanks... for frozen peas!
We have a lot to be thankful for, especially all God has given us. This is the time of the year we get to reflect on that. I am, of course, thankful for all the usual suspects; my wonderful daughter, handsome husband and insanely supportive family and friends!
But, I also wanted to give a special shout out to frozen peas. I mean they are healthy, nutritious and crazy easy to prepare on Thanksgiving, right?!? That is exactly why I am so grateful for my mom assigning me frozen peas for our huge family Thanksgiving dinner. You see, as previously mentioned, I am super busy, like wayyyy more than usual. I’m trying to keep up with any and all things office related (this blog included!), open enrollment season at work, baby Lola turning 1 (see picture below) and now, the holiday season.
Let’s face it folks, once a mom, always a mom! I think on some level my mom sensed I was approaching more than my usual stress level. So, when I got notified all I had to do on Thanksgiving Day was bring frozen peas…I nearly cried! It’s a much needed break from all the craziness. A day to pause and remember how good God is to me. And this year, a day to reflect on how simply amazing it is to get assigned frozen peas for Thanksgiving. So, thanks Mom, you’re the best!
To everyone reading; A Hoppe Holiday! May you and your families have a safe and fun-filled Thanksgiving!
We will resume our regularly scheduled Q&A next week. Until then, signing off to enjoy the weekend with loved ones!
