Thanksgiving should be more of an attitude than an observance;
More a way of life than a day apart;
More a habit than a holiday;
More of a spirit of gratitude than a time of feasting
William Arthur Ward
Thanksgiving Day is tomorrow but the Thanksgiving celebrating is done and over for me. We did our family feast last Saturday. We all had a great time and most of the time only get together like this on the occasion of holidays throughout the year.
Makes me wonder how great every day could be if we had Thanksgiving Day every day!
When I was a young mom, many years ago, I really never thought about what it would be like when all my children were grown up and gone. I did know it was my job as a parent to make sure they grew up to be responsible people but I really never thought about what it would be like at my house when they were all gone.
Go they did and some are further away than others, and each has their own home, family, and ways of life that no longer include me.
What would it be like if we all still lived together? Spouses and grandchildren included. What if we had Thanksgiving Day every day?
I for one would be happy to find out!
Today I’m thankful for:
2255. for cakes of all kinds, they remind me of celebrations
2256. for fruit, oranges loaded with wonderful vitamin C are a must this time of year
2257. for nuts, pecans are my favorite and I think I’ll put some on my fruit cake too.
