I’ve heard many people say that Thanksgiving is their favorite holiday. Is that surprising? Though it’s a holiday sandwiched between the increasingly popular Halloween and the overwhelmingly merchandised Christmas, Thanksgiving remains the holiday of “coming home and spending time with family and friends.”
Thanksgiving should not be just eating, hours of TV, naps, leftover turkey sandwiches and on-line shopping.
Thanksgiving is a time for being thankful for family and friends.
Here are some of the things I am thankful for this Thanksgiving:
“I’m thankful for being able to have a family.”
“I’m thankful for friends inviting us over to share Thanksgiving Day”.
“I’m thankful for my husband of 33 years.”
“I’m thankful for my two sons, my daughter in-law and my grandson”.
“I’m thankful for having big sisters.”
“I’m thankful for having a big brother.
“I’m thankful for my oldest sister and all she has taught me about life.”
“I’m thankful for the opportunity to travel”
“I’m thankful for a career that allows me to fulfill my life purpose.”
“I”m thankful for Manzanillo and the time I get to spend with my sister and brother there every Winter”.
As you plan your family’s Thanksgiving this year, you might want to try going around the dinner table a few times and allowing everyone to express what they’re thankful for. After all – Tis the Season to be Thankful
