Thanksgiving is Thursday here in the United States. It’s one of the days where we come together as family and friends to share and celebrate the things we are grateful for in the past year. Celebrating Thanksgiving is our way of expressing our gratitude. This year has been trying for all of us. We have experienced so many changes that we never thought we would. Through all of this, though, we have gained so much. We have become stronger. We have found each other. We have persevered.
So it got me thinking about what thanksgiving truly means to us when we celebrate it with the ones we love.
What Thanksgiving is about
Thanksgiving is not about the fourth Thursday of November. It is about waking up each day and giving thanks and expressing our gratitude for a new day. Thanksgiving is celebrated in the heart and the mind.
Isn’t it amazing how we are given a day to say our thanks? It’s wonderful because each year we are given an opportunity to find different ways to express our gratitude. I think that’s what Thanksgiving is truly about – being grateful and finding ways to be grateful each day.
Since we have persevered through a pretty challenging year, it is time to say thank you on Thanksgiving day.
Thank you for waking up each day with a grateful heart. A grateful heart is a happy heart, and we are happy that you persevered through it with us. Together, we can make positive changes in our lives.
As you celebrate Thanksgiving and other holidays, may you be filled with love and joy. May you find new and wondrous ways to express gratitude, because that is what thanksgiving is all about. It’s about finding peace and happiness when times are rough. It is staying strong and having the courage to say Thank you for another day.
