Thanksgiving means many things to many people. We may have a few things in common when the word Thanksgiving comes up in conversation. I think of Family and Traditions first, then I get into Grateful, Blessings and the old hymn of gathering together. Then Harvest and food come to mind. Of course, Fall is important and pumpkins and the colorful leaves.
Then I see on the news how flights have been canceled or delayed. Families frantically trying to get to their loved ones to share this wonderful holiday. It is all about family, caring and sharing . . . and taking the time to be thankful and to count our many blessings. No matter what is going on in our lives, the loss of a friend or family member, hardship in whatever form that takes . . . it is a time to reflect and be grateful for what we do have . . . there is always something to be thankful for . . . not just at Thanksgiving, but throughout the year.
I get all sentimental and nostalgic on this day. I also try to get outside myself and the holiday to watch something funny. It is all about the laughter:
I hope you enjoyed this. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
