Being Thankful

Thanksgiving is tomorrow.

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to spend the day with family and talk about everything I’m thankful for and to eat food that makes my heart sing from the moment I step into the kitchen.

Ever since the first Thanksgiving, the theme has always been about family to me. In the year 1621, Pilgrims in Plymouth held a feast and celebrated the plentiful harvest they had that year. The natives who taught them to catch fish and grow food joined in the celebration. People from different backgrounds and different cultures came together and celebrated in a spirit of gratitude and friendship.

So tomorrow, when you pull the turkey out of the oven, or finish the last touch up to your famous pies, think about what you’re grateful for. Make a list to remind yourself of all you have.

Here’s the top four things I can think of at this moment, that i”m very grateful for right now:

1.) I’m thankful for my family, who have always supported me in my efforts.

2.) I’m thankful for my teachers, who work hard to educate me and others.

3.) I am grateful for my computer that I continuously work on to share my stories with the world.

4.) And believe it or not, I’m even thankful for the characters I created, who so kindly allowed me to mess with their lives.

From the air you breathe to the people you know, there is always something to be thankful for. Be sure to keep your heart open this Thanksgiving. Share with someone else the things you’re grateful for, no matter how silly it may be.
