“To give thanks in solitude is enough. Thanksgiving has wings and goes where it must go. Your prayer knows much more about it than you do.” ~ Victor Hugo, poet, novelist & activist
Indeed, I am a Christian who cherishes Christmas and Easter for their innate awesome events and subsequent movements throughout the world. But there is nothing quite like Thanksgiving. Tis the most meaning-full holiday of the year, I believe…a truly holy day… that crosses all boundaries and binds all faiths and followings. It is a simple opportunity to gather without agenda, without guilt, without gaudiness and overpriced ticket items, without marketing schemes or madness.
Pure in nature and message: GIVE THANKS for all you have in your life and FOR YOUR LIFE! And share that with one another. That’s it, folks. A day that beckons you to drop your minutia-filled week and come together to connect and share and show love. Not as difficult as some of us seem to make it. And even if miles separate your loved ones, you’d be amazed how far your thoughts and prayers of peace and positivity can travel. So this year, friends, with full heart I wish you all a simple, pure, love-filled and blessed Thanksgiving. Further, I pray that you continue to give and show thanks every day thereafter. It’s not that difficult. ~ KD
