Growing up my mother was always a big stickler for Thanksgiving–remembering to give thanks and not focusing on the commercialism of Christmas. Of course it helps that she was born on Thanksgiving and her birthday always falls on or around Thanksgiving each year (since Thanksgiving is celebrated the fourth Thursday of the month).
Thanksgiving is more than just a day off from work and a chance to stuff ourselves with turkey. It‘s a time to reflect on all that we‘re thankful for, including our families, friends, and all the good things in our lives. For many of us, Thanksgiving is a warm and happy time spent surrounded by loved ones. It‘s a day to give thanks for all the blessings in our lives, both big and small.
We may not always realize it, but we have a lot to be thankful for. From the roof over our heads to the food on our table, we are truly blessed. On Thanksgiving, we often take time to count our blessings and express our gratitude. We may not realize it, but this simple act of gratitude can have a profound effect on our lives. Studies have shown that gratitude can lead to increased happiness, improved health, and even increased lifespan. So, this Thanksgiving, take a moment to reflect on all that you‘re thankful for. You may be surprised at just how much you have to be grateful for.
Here’s my thanksgiving table as an inspiration to you all. Hope you like it 😉
