Thanksgiving........what does it mean?
It is a time for preparation.....for harvest, for the gathering of family and friends, for collecting wood to comfort us with warm fires and baking, for venturing outdoors to enjoy the beauty of the autumn season. Most of all, it is a time for giving thanks to the very special people in our lives..... our family and friends.
It is a time to remember our loved ones from times gone by, who are dear to our hearts, and for their love and wonderful stories which they have passed along to us, which we in turn will pass along to our children. We cherish these fond memories and love of our family. Thank you for all that you have done for us.
It is a time to count our blessings and accomplishments - no matter how small or large they may be. A time to give thanks for every kind word, deed, smile, helping hand, friendship that comes to us - for these are wonderful gifts.
Thanksgiving is a time to share our joy of life with one another.
This is what it means to me.
