Take a moment.
Close your eyes.
Take a deep breath.
Reflect on the people for whom you are thankful to know.
Think about the things for which you are thankful to have.
Stop all the backstabbing, badmouthing, belly-aching, and bickering!
The glass is half-full… the sun will come up tomorrow… the future is great!
No complaining… or blaming!
Make Thanksgiving a “no-rant” day!
Just today, forget about your fears, troubles, or problems.
Focus on the positive: Why are YOU so blessed?
We gather on this day to be thankful for what we have, the family we love, the friends we cherish, and the blessings that will come.
Soon we will all depart from the challenging year of 2020! Hurray!
From my family to yours – best wishes for the attainment of all of the essential “R’s” during the coming winter break – a refreshing, restful, reawakening, reviewing, recreating, reviving, rejuvenating, replenishing, and re-invigorating New Year!
