Happy Thanksgiving: Celebrating What We’re Thankful For

Happy Thanksgiving: Celebrating What We're Thankful ForAbout two weeks ago my 6-year-old asked if we could bring in our holiday lights from the garage and hang them up around the house.

 

I responded, “Sweetie, Christmas isn’t for a long time yet. Why don’t we wait until the day after Thanksgiving to put them up. Let’s enjoy one holiday at a time.”

 

He quickly turned to me with astonishment flashing in his eyes and answered, “Mama, I don’t want to put lights up for Christmas right now. I want to put lights up for Thanksgiving. It’s important that we celebrate what we’re thankful for. We should decorate for that too.”

 

I told him he was absolutely right, and we brought in the lights and hung them up.

 

Today is the day our nation sets aside to celebrate our blessings. I hope that, like my 6-year-old, you have fun finding new ways to celebrate the things for which you are thankful.

 

Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!
