Thanksgiving is right around the corner, a special time to be thankful for the good memories made in the past, for the great memories to make in the present and future as the Holiday season is here!
Give Your Undivided Attention
Letting go of the stress in your life to sit and enjoy a thanksgiving feast with the people you care about most is a precious gift (A thankful gift). It’s a time to reconnect, to update each other on your busy lives, as well as sitting back to watch the hilarious chaos unfold (especially if you have many kids attending the holidays).
I urge you all to put your cell phones, tablets, and any other electronic devices away when you are among your family and friends. No distractions, with the exception of the football game or parade! This is a time to bond, share and listen to stories. A time to eat fantastic food and share recipes. A time to play games like pictionary, cards, put puzzles together, and have scavenger hunts. Many family traditions also include a friendly game of football, or a walk after eating your delicious turkey, green beans, cranberries, and bread. Whatever your traditions may be each holiday season appreciate them to the fullest.
Be thankful for the people in your life. People are the most important thing in life. If you know someone spending time alone for Thanksgiving invite them over. Even if they say no, your generous heart will touch them, knowing someone cares.
What are you thankful for?
Thanksgiving is also a time to reflect and think about what you are thankful for… feel free to share them in the comments section.
What I’m thankful for…
