I think with roots in pagan times, the idea of celebrating a fruitful harvest has been kicking around for a very long time. But in the USA it’s become a day of family and food, but mostly a day to give thanks for all the wonderful that we have.
My girls run off with their guys and celebrate with those families, so I celebrate it with friends. But it doesn’t take a formal holiday for us to remember to be thankful for what we have. For the hot shower and the sweet scented soaps, for that nice toothbrush and great tasting toothpaste that keeps are smiles healthy and bright, and as a friend says this list could go on forever. But we often forget and take things for granted.
I hope everyone reading, no matter where you live, takes a moment to be thankful for what they have, and to let your friends and loved ones know how much they mean to you.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
