A Word about Thanksgiving, 2018

(Editor’s Note:  Thanksgiving is one of those holidays that reminds us that it is not about us. The world does not revolve around me! None of us would not be here, and we would not be the people we are were it not for the lives of thousands of others who have lived previously and upon whose shoulders we gratefully stand.  I am not referring just to family members but also those from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures who have helped make the world the wonderful place it is.  So today’s article is a repeat–but it’s a good repeat!  I hope you enjoy and are blessed by tt.)

“What do you say?”  I can still hear my parents voices prompting a “Thank you” from me as a child.  Probably, so can you.  That’s one of the things for which I am very grateful–parents who embodied and encouraged a spirit of gratitude and thankfulness!  Adults who reminded me regularly that the life I lived (then and now) is one overflowing with blessings.

As I have said ofttimes, this is one of my favorite seasons of the year! A lot of things contribute to that, but certainly the Thanksgiving holiday is one of the most powerful.

I recently came across an article, The 31 Benefits of Gratitude You Didn’t Know About: How Gratitude Can Change Your Life.

Also, one of my Thanksgiving “traditions” is to encourage you to take 3 minutes and enjoy Mary Chapin Carpenter’s Thanksgiving Song.
