Totally Thanksgiving all month.
We tried, really we did.
But there aren’t many Thanksgiving carols to play.
Or Thanksgiving movies to watch.
I soon realized that Thanksgiving isn’t really a month long celebration.
It really isn’t a celebration at all.
It’s more of a time to pause.
To give thanks.
Thanksgiving stands as a rock of remembrance at the end of November.
A time to recount the blessings we have.
To quiet our hearts.
To adjust our attitudes.
To change our focus.
And as I did, something amazing happened.
I found great joy.
I discovered that a thankful heart is a happy heart.
So dear friends, I wish you all a happy Thanksgiving!
Which is to say, may you be be happy in your Thanks-givings today and everyday.
