Tomorrow is the big Turkey day and everyone will be busy cooking and watching games on the tube. It is a big day for families to spend quality time together, even when the quality is questionable.
It is also a day to look at ourselves critically and to review our blessings. There is not a single soul that cannot find a blessing to be thankful for. With that said, it is also a time to rejoice in the good company of family and friends–a time of coming together to recement the common bonds we all share.
I can make a long list of all the things I am thankful for….family, friends, work, enough money to stay afloat, good food, and so on. I’m sure your list would be very similar. But still, I’d like to encourage all to take a silent moment tomorrow to mentally review all the things we have to be thankful for. Remember our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan who are separated from their families so we can be with ours.
I pray that all who read this enjoy the true blessing of this holiday and are filled with joy. Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
