This is the day to stop and give thanks. Give thanks for the family you have, the food you have to eat, your health, the memories you have, and that you are here in the moment to do so.
We may not live on a farm, but we can grow where we live.
It is all about the soil!

We have all faced many challenges this last year.
We are all thankful to just be here and count our blessings.
Be grateful for having the ones that are with you; family, friends, and neighbors.
Jean Leon Gerome Ferris: The First Thanksgiving
Be thankful for the food that you have to eat.
So many times, Thanksgiving Day is just a day before Black Friday or a benchmark for other events or activities.
To me, this day is about family and memories that I have of family.
I am so grateful for the family members that made Thanksgiving Day a wonderful day in the past and the family members that make it the same today.
May this day and every day bring you peace, love, joy, hope, and a deeper faith in God.
