Thanksgiving is an American holiday celebrated once a year. Food, drink and the gathering of people we like (or don't but feel responsible to have around) happens in homes throughout the country.
For me, being grateful and thankful is an everyday happening. Getting together with people I care about doesn't have to be a holiday.
The focus of each day should be GRATITUDE, being THANKFUL for "what is". Keeping a daily gratitude list is an important reminder that all my needs are met and I have every thing I need to create a good life.
