Thanksgiving is a holiday that doesn't get enough love. People get so excited for Halloween and then want to skip straight to Christmas. This year you all are going to see the best things about Thanksgiving and hopefully begin to appreciate the holiday that has been transformed into a day to give thanks for what we are blessed to have.
Thanksgiving is a great time to sit around the table with family and be thankful that you have each other. I know that a lot of people get into arguments over the dinner table with their families over various topics, but just be sure to take this time to make the most of the moment. Take it from someone who has lost precious family members, you will miss the memories and be regretful if you lost opportunities to make more. And if you are someone without family, just remember that you can choose family as well. So take today to hang out with your close friends and make memories.
