Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving

Thankful: gratefulappreciativefilled with gratitude (dictionary). 
Thanksgiving is the beginning of the holiday season. A season spent in chaos as people scurry to the stores to buy gifts and decorate with gaudy inflatables. However, if we remember this day--the day when the spider webs and skeletons finally come down and Christmas trees and Mangers go up, the meaning of the season cannot be lost. Today we remember all the things we are thankful for. 
Family. Life. Happiness. 
It is a day spent in a kitchen and around a table--eating good food, sipping eggnog, and watching the parade. 
A day spent with each other. 

Happy Thanksgiving.

Remember today what you are thankful for. And tomorrow, when you are fighting your way through the sales, don't forget. The holidays aren't about the presents that flood under the tree, but the people who sit around it. 

Be thankful for what you have, not what you think you need.
