Someone once told me that Thanksgiving was their favorite holiday because it’s one of few secular holidays. They love that everyone in America can enjoy it, and it doesn’t cause awkward political or religious tidings, you can wish everyone and anyone a Happy Thanksgiving in the nation. My personal favorite holiday is Christmas (still, for secular reasons), but since I heard this woman’s glee over Thanksgiving, a holiday that everyone can enjoy, I find myself appreciating it so much more.
This has been such a rough month for my home state. I posted a lot in the last weeks about gratitude, not even realizing it until someone pointed out that this is all just in time for Thanksgiving.
Every single one of us has innumerable blessings to be thankful for. I hope that no matter where you were yesterday, or what you were eating, you are still feeling the gratitude of the day.
I hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving!
