What is Thanksgiving? How do you celebrate? What are you thankful for this year?
As children, we learned about the first meal shared at Plymouth Colony where Pilgrims invited Wampanoag Indians to join hands and hearts and gave thanks for the “autumn harvest.” That was in 1621, a three-day festival, per history books. The holiday continues now, but what are you truly thankful for, at this very moment? Food, football, friends and fun? Perhaps. Is that enough?
Do you just skip over Thanksgiving and immediately get in the Christmas spirit and head out for the Black Friday extravaganza? If so, when you are pulling out those debit and credit cards for Black Friday, remember that the best gift you can give someone is your time. Make time and memories for the people that you love and care for and worry less about the materialistic things that have consumed so many of our lives.
Giving thanks and being thankful—that’s what our special day is dedicated to each year. I am thankful for each and every one of you who take the time to read or watch my blog every week and pray that you get something out of it each time you do. And for my clients, I am so very thankful for all of you for trusting me to help you make the right decisions with your hard earned money.
I hope that all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving spent with family and friends and a lot of laughter and food.
