Month of Thanks: Day 26

Day 26: Thanksgiving

Yum! That’s the first thing we all think when Thanksgiving comes to mind: the food. The roasted turkey, the mashed potatoes, the soft, warm rolls, the green bean casserole, the dressing, and the pies and cobblers: apple, pecan, pumpkin. Mm! (I actually used to hate pie. :p I was a weird child. Haha!)

But Thanksgiving is so much more than the food. Thanksgiving is the one day of the year that we truly sit down and give thanks for all the wonders and joys in our lives, no matter how big or small. It’s a reminder to be grateful and not take things for granted. It’s a reminder to stop and appreciate the little things in life.

It’s when families and friends come together. They enjoy each others company while they enjoy delicious food. No one is in a rush to go home, but maybe in a rush to watch football. It’s a time to relax. No shopping, or schedules. No worries or troubles. It’s like a breath of calm air in the midst of the bustling holiday season and it’s always been my absolute favorite. (Granted my birthday falls on it once every few years. :p)

When it comes right down to it, I’m grateful for every part of Thanksgiving: the food, the people, the atmosphere, the colored leaves and crisp autumn air, and maybe a birthday cake once in a while, too.

    1. Haha! Yes, we do get two big celebrations, which is nice, but it’s a lot of work. :p After the holidays, people are very happy for it to be over, though. Hee hee! Lots of time to recuperate.

      Vegetarian Christmas? I didn’t know you were a vegetarian. Oh dear… I hope my hobbies aren’t going to make you dislike me.

  2. Happy thanksgiving, and also a happy belated birthday! I hope you had a wonderful time.

    My family acknowledges Thanksgiving but we don’t celebrate it with the amazing food most people do it with. I could really use some mashed potatoes and pie right now though. Mm xD
