Although the commercial community has a tendency to focus on Halloween as the beginning of the holiday season and completely ignore Thanksgiving and skip directly to Christmas, I think Thanksgiving is one of the most wonderful holidays of the year. I can't think of anything more important to focus on than being grateful. And no people in the history of the world ever had more to be grateful for than citizens of the United States. I am seriously annoyed with those who refer to Thanksgiving as "Turkey Day" as if eating turkey is the only thing worth thinking about on this day.
I am grateful for freedom to be in charge of my own life.
I am grateful for family.
I am grateful for opportunity.
I would go on, but this list would never end.
This year for Thanksgiving we entertained nieces, nephews, a grandparent, and a friend. Their company made the holiday even better.
