THANKSGIVING- the national holiday to celebrate the harvest, and the many blessing for the past year. It is a time when family and friends get together to share a meal, have fun, and to reflect on the blessings and memories formed during the past year.
Life is so busy, and sometimes we take things for granted, such as waking up each morning and taking that first breath, for health, food, shelter, family, and even the simple things as our senses- taste, touch, sight, smell, and hearing. Let us pause, not only on this Thanksgiving, but every day, to say Thanks for all the wonderful blessing that we each get to experience daily. Let us impart to our kids having a heart of gratitude and not always of want!
In our family, we all share something we are thankful for, usually during breakfast. We then have Thanksgiving dinner with extended family, followed by a movie; usually a comedy. This year we have more little ones running around, so we’ll see how that goes.
What are some of your traditions?
From our family to yours Happy Thanksgiving!
