I am writing this the day before Thanksgiving Day and wanted to share some thoughts with all of you who read this. First off, since some of you may not be familiar with Thanksgiving Day here in the U.S., it is a day in which we celebrate with family. The celebration is to give thanks for the things we have in life, whether it be good health, or wealth or whatever else that we are thankful for.

The origins is in myth that the Pilgrims broke bread with the Indians when the Pilgrims arrived in the new world. The myth also has it that the Indians shared turkey with the Pilgrims, so usually a bird is cooked on Thanksgiving Day. My husband and I are having all of our children and grandchildren into out home this holiday and yes, we are cooking the traditional turkey.

As I reflect back this past year, I am thankful that our family has been in good health. No one in our family has lost their jobs and all are able to put food on the table. We celebrate that our grand children will learn the values of our family including our belief in God and our Lord, Jesus Christ. We thank Him for being with us always and in his guidance as we make our way through life.

These are the things I am truly thankful for.

What about you? What are you thankful for?
