Thanksgiving is coming soon, what does it mean and why is it overlooked by many people?
Thanksgiving is defined as the expression of gratitude, especially to the Creator, and when the Pilgrims created this holiday in 1621, they had many things to be thankful for. They were thankful to the Native Americans that were tools the Creator used to express His love and compassion for these strangers in this new land.
I won’t go into the dark side of this situation since dwelling on the past injustices only pollutes our present moment, and there are too many people who fall down this path of pain.
I can’t seem to understand why so many people overlook a day of thanksgiving? In this world of excess you would think people would have a lot to be thankful for? Maybe what we have doesn’t really make us happy?
I know that I am thankful for my family, true friends in my life, my home, all of my needs that have been met this year, and my journey of learning and awakening to what life is really about.
