Like many other families, I celebrated Thanksgiving early. My siblings and their significant others could not gather on the actual holiday due to work and other commitments. We decided to get together last Saturday at my parents’ house.
Even though, the celebration was not held on Thanksgiving, we still all enjoyed ourselves. Honestly, I think just being together should be the focus of the day. Life can change quickly; those who gathered around the table this year may not be present next.
As you sit down to celebrate the holiday today, remember to be thankful for what you do have. People often forget to enjoy the moment. I am convinced there is always something to be thankful for, life should not always be about getting the bigger paycheck, the newer car, or even publishing your novel. Take a look around the table and be grateful for all that life current has to offer.
I am wishing many blessings to you this Thanksgiving.
May we all realize the most important things for which to give thanks.
So however you decide to spend the day, I hope you are blessed.
I am still thankful for Thanksgiving; I get to spend the day with my niece and my parents. We are cooking a small meal. Then, my niece, mom and I are going to work on Christmas crafts. I am truly blessed.
