Giving thanks on this holiday
"Giving thanks on this holiday"
By my son
Every year at this time, people are preparing to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday.
This is usually the one time of year that people show their gratitude and gratefulness for everything that has happened during the year. I personally show my thanks and gratitude all year round almost everyday. I don’t wait for one day a year to be thankful, I am thankful everyday for having food to eat, clean water to drink, a house to live in, clothes to wear, a loving mother, Our United States Of America’s loyal military, and just to be alive.
I understand what the tradition of what this holiday means and how it goes back to the very first Thanksgiving when two separate, diverse cultures came together and became one and had their Thanksgiving dinner in celebration. And that is why we celebrate this holiday on a certain day once a year.
But I think it has grown into so much more and that we should be thankful and show our appreciation all year round. We have so much to be thankful for always even if it is just the air we breathe, the beat of our hearts, and knowing that we are loved.
I wish everyone a blessed, safe, and joyous Thanksgiving.
