Thanksgiving may have come and gone, but I am still in the mood to be thankful.
One of the Biggest things I am thankful for – besides all the usual personal stuff like family, health and well-being – is that we, as a community of people here on this Earth, take time to honor Thanksgiving. It may be celebrated on different days and in different ways in other countries, but there’s this global ideal of giving thanks.
It warms my heart and soul to think how we actually set aside a day to gather together in gratitude and GIVE THANKS. We open our hearts and homes to share in acknowledging our blessings, and often to share with others who have less.
What am I grateful for? I am grateful for Thanksgiving.
And then, as if that’s not enough, we follow up Thanksgiving with a whole season of giving and receiving. The very act of giving and receiving is a blessing to both the giver and the receiver. So let’s celebrate December and the holiday season, filled with lights and joy and good will toward our fellow man and woman.
