Giving Thanks

What are you thankful for?

On Thanksgiving, do you really stop to think about it, or are you more bombarded with family and food? The above question seems cliche, but it's the reason for a holiday, celebration and tradition.

Do you ever think about that phrase either, too? Giving thanks. Who are we giving thanks to? Others who we need to praise? Others who deserve a thank you? Perhaps should we use this day to thank all who have helped us within the previous year? Could you imagine if we really did that? I feel like we all, as a whole people, would be more appreciative, and the holiday would have much more meaning. Imagine if we really did give thanks.

Do you have any unique traditions?

Otherwise, what are you thankful for this year?
