Thankful Day 3

As we all sit down to enjoy a meal tomorrow.. let us
remember those who aren’t so lucky, and be grateful that you are.

Look around the table, be it at your home, a home of friend or family. Or if you don’t have that, a restaurant that is giving away a meal that day. And think about what is in your life, you should be thankful for.

Maybe even share that thought with those who you share the meal. Sometimes we forget how lucky we are.  Some forget and count their richness in money, when it is actually the richness of a good family and friends..  As long as you have a roof over your head, food to eat each day, a warm place to be.. a job… and enough money to keep the bill takers from your door… you have a lot to be thankful for. 

There is no good will that comes out with arguing with Aunt Ethel, or Uncle Fred, or cousin Ruth, so try to let go for this day, as a practice.
Just smile and say, “I never thought of it that way”, and walk away to another person in the room.  No matter what is served on the table, even if it isn’t the way you would have cooked it, or served it,.. remember for this day, you didn’t have to cook it. And you are luckier than a 1/3 of the people on this earth.  Just for that day.. smile, be a people watcher,

And know tomorrow is another day.  Be thankful for the life you have. No matter how small or how large it is.. 
And be thankful it only comes once a year………….joking…

Enjoy.. I wish all of you readers, a wonderful day.. filled with good food, great friends and family and full of laughter… I know our house will… We will have 17 in our little house.. but it will be full to the brim, with friends and family… and love…

Thank you, Richardson and Linekin family for showing me .. what a real Thanksgiving day is like.. I will have you all in my mind and heart, as we celebrate ours.
