Thanksgiving is a holiday that is enjoyed but seems to be minimized in many ways. It touches many of the things Americans love most. Things such as; time off work, hanging out with family, and eating delicious food.
I am sure these things have to be in the top 5 things we love most. Adding football to the list is another top 5 for the guys and some of the ladies. I must say, that the Thanksgiving Holidays are some of the best days of the year for my family. We value waking up together, sharing a late breakfast, and heading off to the in-laws for a great turkey meal with all the trimmings.
We follow the meal with the annual “family fued” commonly known as dominoes.
If the weather is great many of the young kids and middle aged men throw around the football and team off for a backyard game. Each year I am reminded that I have only a few years left for this.
All of it is a part of the holiday we call thanksgiving. But the greatest thing about thanksgiving is; it reminds us to give thanks to our God who allows the joy of being together.
I am sure it would help us to give thanks more often.
Let’s consider giving thanks every day and maybe we could call that “ThanksLiving” rather than waiting for a day called Thanksgiving.
