To my international readers, today as an annual day of Thanksgiving in the United States.
I have much to be Thankful for. A long term loving relationship. A comfortable home. A career that I find meaningful. Reasonable economic security. We live in a safe and secure place. I have few fears. I am able to move about, for the most part as I wish.
For too much of my life, Thanksgiving was a festival of gluttony.
Today I will over indulge in being thankful for what I have, in being kind to others, in remembering the joys of the past year, and planning for the joys of the coming year. I will remember how fortunate we are, we are well educated, comfortable, safe, secure, not fearing an imminent death (in reasonably good health.) I will cook something good, because I love to cook, and partaking in good food with people you enjoy is an act of love, but I will focus on the people, and the time, and all we have to be thankful for.
Wishing you and yours a safe, secure and happy Thanksgiving.
While Thanksgiving is meaningless to us, I know it is important for you in the US, and I wish you a very happy one.ReplyDelete
