These days Thanksgiving often gets lumped into the mix with the next two big events of the year, Christmas and New Years, and collectively known as The Holidays.
As in, ‘What are you doing for The Holidays?’ or ‘Do you have your Holiday Shopping done?’.
Whoever had the foresight to stick Thanksgiving on the calendar where it is was brilliant!
At the gateway to what can seem ‘the most stressful time of year’ — the weeks leading up to the Big Two — we get Thanksgiving Day, a day to remind us to be grateful for the many gifts and blessings of the other 11 months of year.
Wherever you are, formal holiday or not,
a day focused on gratitude
is a good thing to observe.
I want to tell you all that, today and every day I am grateful to you, my blogging friends, for reading my words, for sharing your thoughts and lives with me over the last nine years!
