Thanksgiving is a time when the words, to be thankful and giving thanks, come to mind. Although, it seems to mean something different to almost everyone.

On Thanksgiving Day, there are many of us who sit shoulder-to-shoulder at the dinner table with friends, family, loved ones, casual acquaintances, and even strangers.

Before we reach for the bread and butter, mashed potatoes, or gravy ladle, many of us will pause for a few words of thanks for all we’re surrounded with.

If we didn’t celebrate Thanksgiving, most of us would continue in our busy mode and wouldn’t realize the impact of all that we have been blessed with.

We find it easy to take things for granted, or, sometimes, we don’t appreciate the little things others do for us.

In order to really enjoy and recognize our greatest blessings that we are surrounded with, we must all learn to slow down, pause, prioritize, and let our soul reflect upon what’s connected to our inner-most being.

We should also be grateful and thankful for the promise of more blessings to come.
