A Month of Thanksgiving and Gratitude

November 2nd, 2017

Many countries and religions have special days to give thanks. In the United States, Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday celebrated on the fourth Thursday of the month.

Families gather around tables that are laden with more food than one normally eats. It is part of the tradition to have a stuffed turkey, mashed potatoes, yams, cranberry sauce, vegetables and salad followed by apple, mince and pumpkin pies.

It is also the time when we hold hands and bow our heads to give thanks for the many blessings we have received.

Gratitude is important for our age-esteem. It has power to help us feel good at every age. In future blogs, I will share some of the ways this is true.
