Relax And Review Of My Day

Updated on November 28, 2013

So Easy To Do And So Hard To Say

Today is Thanksgiving Day

So many people across America celebrate it so many ways

With handed down traditions that are special and unique

Some that stand out

Eating turkey or spending time with family and friends

I for one am not a big turkey eater but I have never gone hungry either

I like to see my family even though every year it gets harder and harder

This year I am taking a different approach

I have to admit every day I should give thanks

I think we all need constant reminders to keep us on track

So Thanksgiving Day is my little special reminder once a year

To be happy for what I have and for those people who have graced my life

In any way

Making me understand how precious life really is

So I extend my Thanksgiving day to everyone across the world

That each if us may find the things that make us happy

Starting each day finding the good in other people

Ending each day finding the good in ourselves

That will keep us from losing site of the true meaning in life

      Gypsy Rose Lee I ate enough turkey for you and me. Extra helpings of cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes. We had a lovely day. You can still celebrate and bring back that old spirit. Thanks so much for reading so many of my stories.

      Good evening Michael.

      Very thoughtful reflexion on thanks- giving. There is so much to be thankful for. Everyday. A one day designated , once a year, to give thanks , families together ,- giving thanks for everything we are and we have - not many nations set apart a day like this. It's even good eating , plus. Your idea to give thanks everyday, is great idea. . . We do give thanks everyday, we know how much more we are blessed with , we praise The GIVER, thus sowing seeds for favor to have our needs met until the last day of our earthly journey .

      Voted up and beautiful.

      Have a nice evening.
