My Favorite Holiday

I was just thinking about Thanksgiving and how much I love this holiday. For me it's about being around people I care about, sharing a (usually) delicious meal and everyone's company . I love that it's not filled with the card-writing, gift-giving pressure of Christmas and having to fake loving the gift that someone has given me. I love that there's less build up to this holiday and I love that I don't have to work the day after.

So, maybe during this holiday when we get together with all of our (crazy and weird) relatives and friends, stuff our faces and become full-bellied with satisfaction, we can complain less and take some time to remember how lucky all of us truly are. In the grand scheme of things, even the most disgruntled among us is living better than 99% of our fellow inhabitants on the planet. For better or worse, may we give thanks to all that we do have in our lives. May we remember to help those around us in need. And may we remember that health, love and friendship should never be taken for granted.

Wishing you peace and love on Thanksgiving.
