Tomorrow is about giving thanks, but today is about rushing to the place where you can do that. Here we all are, dashing about in turmoil, our thoughts on the future. Maybe you are in transit right now. Maybe everyone is coming to you and you are mopping floors and cooking up a storm. Maybe you are navigating a jam-packed grocery store for the third time in the past eight hours because you forgot the damn cranberries, again. Maybe chance or choice means you are spending the day on your own, or in difficult circumstances, or far from the ones you care for the most.
One of the things I love best about Thanksgiving is that there is no ugly baggage around it, no praying, no presents, no politics. In my ideal world, we pass the day together with our dearest, and tell them how glad we are that they are in our lives, and hey, let’s eat!
This year, our Thanksgiving will be a bit different from our usual ones, but that is all right. Times may not be perfect, but we are all healthy. We have so much to be grateful for, and one small part of that is that I can be here, to tell this to you.
Whatever you are doing this Thanksgiving, wherever you are heading today on the way to it, thanks for spending a couple of minutes here with me. I wish you the best from the bottom of my heart.
