Not supposed to be on the computer much so I will be brief (or at least try to). According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, the term thanksgiving means:
1. the act of giving thanks
2. a prayer expressing gratitude
3. a public acknowledgment or celebration of divine goodness
Tomorrow, I will be engaging in numbers 1, 2, and 3. I hope you’ll join me. Despite life’s sometimes uncontrollable circumstances, we can all choose to be thankful for something or someone (or many things and many people). I am incredibly grateful for my family and friends who have been present when life has handed me cannolis (my favorite dessert) or when it’s dished out the Warheads. I also have a wonderful home, clean water, food, and a body pillow. Not going to lie, I am looking forward to mom’s Italian stuffing, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie (a large can of Ready Whip awaits). But the people I am sharing the meal with make the holiday. I hope you’ll join me in bringing to mind what or who you are thankful for. While I know, for some of you, Thanksgiving will be difficult and/or sad, remember that someone is thankful for YOU!
