“I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual.” –Henry David Thoreau
Many around the Thanksgiving table will barely take the time to enjoy the traditions of the holiday before rushing out to score the best shopping deals. Recently, we even came across a website that defines Thanksgiving as “a holiday on the fourth Thursday of November that precedes Black Friday.” Thanksgiving is about so much more than turkey and sales. It’s about thankfulness and the recognition that we are all blessed with positive things that come our way in life.
Every Thanksgiving as our family gathers to eat more than any human should in one day, we always take the time to reflect on the past year and say thanks for all the blessings in our lives. With that in mind, we give you the five things we’re most grateful for this Thanksgiving.
