Putting Some “Give” in ThanksGIVing

October 11th, 2013 2 Comments Tags: , , , ,

Ok so Thanksgiving has been on my brain lately. Last weekend my family jumped the gun and celebrated it early. It got me thinking about what all of this means more deeply, hmmmmm.

I think Thanksgiving is one of my favourite long weekends of all long weekends – the family, the food, the extra day’s sleep-in, the changing leaves, what’s not to love? When I get right down to what I love most, it’s everyone pitching in putting some “give” in Thanksgiving.

Ya I love Christmas, who doesn’t? But sometimes we get so wound like a top making lists, checking them twice, buying gifts for people who don’t need anything then meet the day with joy but also a side order of exhaustion and guilt. Don’t get me wrong I’d be miffed if Santa passed by my house because of my self righteousness. But really folks giving of yourself with an open heart, honesty, love and helping hands is what we all really crave, don’t you think?

So come this weekend put some “give” in Thanksgiving and make this one the best ever!

    You are so right. We all need to stop and look around and say how lucky we are. We have our precious parents, all sisters are intact, no inement deceases to talk about. Yes sit around the Thanksgiving table and say “thank you Lord” for so many blessings.
