Does anyone read blogs on Thanksgiving? If you run a blog, should you be writing on Thanksgiving?
Should it be just another day? Or…should it be a reflective day? A day where some of us actually do not go online. Where we force ourselves to hang out with family, and friends? Where we just kick back, take our shoes off, and enjoy a slower, non technologically based 24 hours or so?
I think so. Happy Thanksgiving. A gratitude day…….
"The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts. No Americans have
been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of
thanksgiving." – H.U. Westermayer
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It
turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into
acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…. It turns
problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect
timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of
our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow." – Melodie Beattie
"If you can’t be thankful for what you receive, be thankful for what you have escaped."
