|I am reposting from a blog I receive every day by an amazing motivator Jerry Del Colliano. Good advice I plan to take. Read on.
Often it takes very little to add real meaning to a family event and Thanksgiving is the time when families come together. The person who toiled preparing the traditional Thanksgiving turkey or the one responsible for the get together is often overlooked and under appreciated. But we can change that.
Thanksgiving also turns into a drama when some family members come together and they don’t really get along the rest of the year. I know people who dread this holiday for that reason and that is sad.
So, try a different path this year.
Thanksgiving is a wonderful opportunity to practice gratitude. Some folks like to invite a guest who is alone or not as fortunate to the family celebration. Others like to bring leftovers to those who may be unable to attend so that they don’t feel forgotten.
In giving we receive the benefits that come from food, family, parades and football games when we do things to add real meaning to the holiday. Happy Thanksgiving – I appreciate the thousands of you who start your day with me right here — Jerry
