Giving Thanks for Thanksgiving November 25, 2010

Posted by Matsu in Family, Friends.

Give Thanks Table with RunnerThanksgiving is a day of remembrance. A day to remember the past year’s events. A day to remember the people in your life — family and friends. A day to thank God for what he has done and the many blessings he has given us.

Sure, Thanksgiving is often associated with food and eating, but the real reason for the food is to celebrate, with the people who gather with you around that Thanksgiving table, all of the blessings that we have received throughout the year. Granted, not all of your family or friends may be with you on Thanksgiving Day, but you certainly are aware of them and are no less thankful for them in their absence – possibly more thankful because they are absent. That is certainly true in my case — both for family members and for close friends who are not here.

On this Thanksgiving Day I have much to be thankful for — more than I deserve. Much more than I would have expected. A lot has happened this year, not all of it good nor pleasant, but the lion share has been very good. I have no reason to complain and have every reason to be thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

“more thankful because they are absent” – Ha! I had to read that a few times before I was sure I understood what you were actually saying. :o)

(And evidently I had to comment a few times as well – how do you delete your own comments – like Facebook?)
