Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving Day is a holiday that is mainly celebrated in the United States and Canada. In the US we celebrate on the fourth Thursday of November and if we are lucky, we can extend the celebration through the weekend.

There are so many different ways to celebrate the day. When I was young, we visited my grandmother. When I was newly married, we visited my mother. After my mother died, my son and I would often go out to a restaurant to celebrate. This year, my son and I are going to a friend's house to joint with his family for the celebration.

However it is celebrated, it is a time to reflect on the many things for which to give thanks.

I want to give special thanks for my family. They are my bedrock and so very special to me. It is a great gift to know that my family is always there for me.

I also remember my friends. New friends and old are remembered. It is important to let these friends know how important they are and to set aside time to nurture and enjoy the friendships.

I am fortunate to have good health. I do not take this for granted. I do what I can to stay healthy but I also recognize that this is a gift and I am grateful.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving Day in your own way.
