(be) Happy (in your) Thanksgiving!

800px-Thanksgiving-BrownscombeThe girls and I decided early in November that we were going to celebrate Thanksgiving all month.

That’s right.

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 savor.

To reflect.

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.

And peace.

And contentment.

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.
