Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.
Today is a day of memories. Memories of what you are thankful for. Memories of who you are thankful for. To remember what the year has brought to you, things changed and things that stayed the same.
I know it’s a cliche, but I am so thankful for my family. We’ve had birthdays, a grandchild born and one buried. I’m happy for the new baby and glad for the time I had with the one in heaven. I remember this was my father’s favorite holiday. Not much to get ready for except food which he loved and family to get together with. So I give thanks for my family, both near and far and even farther in heaven. I was truly blessed to know them.
So today, instead of spending time on all the lists and wants, looking through various black Friday ads (at least while you have family there.) Focus today on thankfulness. Thankfulness for what you have. Make memories with the people around you. Eat pie, laugh and play games and remember that not everyone has that. Reach out to someone else. You have a lot to be thankful for.
