“Thanksgiving is a word that when pulled apart has two separate meanings, but when joined together makes for a special and joyous time for us all, as we become thankful for who we are and give ourselves to those around us”
Thanksgiving is a time for us all to take stock in our lives, be thankful for who we are and for who helped us get to this point on our path of this journey through life. When we are thankful for all we have and to who is around us, we then can truly give our love to all those around us and truly share the warmth of this love.
Thanksgiving has become one of the busiest travel holidays we know, with everybody traveling back home to their loved ones, or visiting friends for which they have lost touch with, we have all lost from where this Thanksgiving Holiday came from. The Pilgrims also traveled from where they came from to the new land, known as the North American Continent, they met the Native Americans here on this new land, as they greeted them and welcomed them to build their new settlement. The Native American showed the Pilgrims around their new home and the two shared many things with each other and to show just how thankful they were, towards their new friends the Native American, the Pilgrims took the fruits of their labor in their first crops for which they planted, invited their new friends over for a big feast, which today we know as Thanksgiving.
True today we all may gather with loved ones or friends we have lost touch with and have a big feast with them, but we have lost what the true meaning of what this Holiday truly stands for. Some of us may take to standing in a line way too early for a department store, so we can get the big deals of the start of the Christmas season (which this is another Holiday we have lost the true meaning of), instead of being truly thankful for who we are and for what is around us, not too mention for those who fought the good fight, so we ourselves can live here in the new land, safely and freely, to wander as we want to wander along our paths of this country and of our journey through life.
When we are thankful for all that is around us, shows that we respect and love all that is around us, like the Families which we are a part of, having a roof over our heads, that keep us fed and clothed each and everyday of our journey, being thankful towards God the creator of all Mankind and when we acknowledge him, he will guide us along this journey towards the path of righteousness. There is a lot for us to be thankful for, so we can walk our paths along this journey, but being thankful for all the right things and not just for the stores to be open, so we can shop and get the specials or sales?
As we all come together for yet another big feast, let us be truly thankful for who we are and for everything that is around us, so we can enjoy this big feast in happiness, while we enjoy the comfort and love of all those around us. Let us celebrate this Thanksgiving for all the right reasons and not just because we have to or are forced to come away from our little Worlds for a day, let us come together not just for a day, but for everyday of our existence, along our paths of this journey through life.
” Thanks/Giving…….. Two words put together with different meanings, that bring us all together in love and happiness always”
