What I am thankful for

Thanksgiving is my mom’s favorite holiday. She loves that it is a day that focuses on what’s good in the world.  The holiday is not about getting or giving gifts and it’s not commercialized to the same degree other holidays can be. At our Thanksgiving dinner, we each write on a card what we are thankful for and then go around the table sharing what we wrote. Mom keeps these cards so each year we can revisit past expressions of gratitude. Doing so helps me remember how much I have in my life to enjoy – not only the material items (a car, house, etc.) that make my life pleasant but the important people (husband, children, family) and the feelings I get from having so many wonderful others in my life.  Enjoy your family and have a wonderful holiday!
