Reflecting this Thanksgiving 2014 / by Ozzie Gromada Meza

I wanted to share a family tradition I believe others may enjoy and hopefully take as their own.  I enjoy this tradition because it makes me really appreciate family and helps me pause for a second to give thanks for what I have.  

Just like many other families, this year my family gathered together to celebrate Thanksgiving with some great food, drinks and laughs.  As dinner comes to an end, we go around the dinner table and ask for everyone to stand up one at a time and say what they are thankful for.  EVERYONE is required to do this!  It does not matter if you are 3 years old or 100.  We spend about an hour or more going around the table and it is the best 1+ hour ever!  Everyone takes their time to collect their thoughts and say what is important to them.  Some people cry and others laugh, but more people cry because our family is full of criers! :)  

This year I am thankful for my husband who truly is my soulmate, my mother, father and sisters who shower me with love, and my two brother-in-laws who keep me on my toes.  Lastly, I am thankful of all the support I have received from family and friends in this new chapter of my life.  gromeza floral design studio was created out of the desire to do something I love and to create beautiful moments for others.  Thank you now and forever!
