Memories and traditions handed down through generations seem to come to life at Thanksgiving. Whether it’s the fluttering of red, orange, and brown leaves; the chill in the air; Thanksgiving cooking shows; Grandma’s recipes; and pumpkin spice everything!
In years past, we’d sit around the Thanksgiving table and share stories and experiences. Seems Thanksgiving has been upstaged by Christmas shopping. Stores that open for sale prices only applied during specific hours on Thanksgiving Day. No time for parades. The famous once-a-year meal must be scheduled between football games and store hours.
Maybe it’s just me but – STOP THE MADNESS!

As the saying goes, all work and no play makes your name inserted here a dull person. There are countless reasons to laugh, and some of those set-aside board games on Thanksgiving Day may be one of them. Here’s a reminder from a very wise man: “A merry heart does good, like medicine” (Prov.17:22). This is a great time to take your medicine! 🙂
Let it go! Baggage is for road trips, cruises, and airplanes. Period.
Thankful only has one “l,” but I think it deserves two. For this holiday, take a few minutes to recognize it’s Thanksgiving Day, and be thankfull for all the Lord has done.
