Weekly Round-Up: Being Thankful

The French don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, so for the past nine years, I’ve had to celebrate on the weekend, not Thanksgiving day.

Today we’re having Thanksgiving lunch with some of my dearest friends and I’m so Thankful. Thankful for my wonderful kids, funny husband and close friends. Thankful that we are living in a spacious, sunlit apartment. Thankful that my job has been renewed for a year and for the new professional opportunities I have. Thankful that we can afford to replace our car which is on the way out. Thankful for my three remaining cats, who entertain us every day. Thankful for Almost Frugal, and you, my readers.


Meanwhile, here are some of my favorite reads for the week:

As always, you can check out the Good Reads page or my Tumblr site Almost Frugal Finds for all my links, as well as following me on Twitter for the Frugal Tips of the Day.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

With the holiday chaos, we forget the simple things in life like being thankful for loved ones and for appreciating the things you have. Thanks for this sweet reminder.

I agree Carol – sometimes saying a simple "thank you" can be the best gift to give someone during the holiday craziness.

I work for State Farm and we made a site, Thanksforbeingthere.com, solely for the purpose of thanking someone who has made a difference in your life. You can even send the link of your post to the person who you're honoring! Might be a nice idea to do for someone during this holiday time.
