by definition Webster’s dictionary says:
noun; 1. a: capitalized : THANKSGIVING DAY
b: a public acknowledgement or celebration of divine goodness
2. : the act of giving THANKS
3. : a prayer expressing gratitude
Well, what Webster’s doesn’t mention is family. Thanksgiving is family—whether it be the one the divine has given us, or the one we create in our hearts.
Yes, we give thanks for the food and the blessings we personally receive, but it’s those “family” members, that are with us or have moved beyond this world, we hold deep in our hearts and we are truly thankful for and blessed by.
So, whether you have to still sit at the kids table, next to Aunt Fanny who keeps asking if you’re married yet, Uncle Charlie who insists on picking his teeth with his fork, or that crew member you just met that wants to know everything about you…YOUR “family” is in your heart and no matter what is going on, just the thought of them can and will make you smile and be…thankful.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and all of your families.
