Yes it is that time again. It is time to plan our dinners for the holiday feast we affectionately call Thanksgiving. It is time to have family and friends over to partake in this dinner that will take hours to prepare and maybe a couple of days for shopping. We will give to charitable organizations to ensure that others will be able to enjoy a sumptuous dinner as well.

Amid all of the pomp and circumstance of this holiday dinner, what is the meaning behind it for you? What does Thanksgiving mean to you as an individual? I understand the ‘traditional’ signifiance behind this holiday but does it really hold any meaning for you?

Some individuals may be excited about the shopping days that follows the holiday with all the sales and promises of bargain finds.  

So what does it really mean to you?  

For me, it really is a time for family and friends to enjoy time together that have not taken the time to stay in touch throughout the year. I love family so I enjoy this chance of visiting with those that live far away over a meal. It is a time of reflection of what is really important in your life. It is a time to think of those less fortunate and give of yourself to others.  

Thanksgivging is also a time when others are alone and feel the loss of thier loved ones that have passed on. This time for them can be very difficult.  

So whatever Thanksgiving is or is not to you, may you take the time to reflect on days gone by as well as appreciating what is given to you today. This is my wish for you.  

Again, I ask what does Thanksgiving really mean to you?

Love it
