Celebrated on many countries in one form or another,
Here in America it’s about Turkey and other foods indigenous to North America;
It’s also about shopping for some, early “deals”, for Black Friday,
It’s about getting loved ones together for food and football and maybe watching a parade, maybe throwing a football around too.
I’m somewhere in the middle of all of it, but mostly it’s people and the gratitude for me,
It’s cooking a big meal with our family and friends to enjoy together, and having extra focus on being thankful, for what we have and what we share,
They say having an “attitude of gratitude” is part of the foundation for a happier life. A Harvard study noted,
“…gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness. Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.”
So here’s to a little more gratitude and happiness, with some turkey , mashed potatoes, and roasted vegetables along the way.
