Give Thanks

One recent Thanksgiving my wife and I sat around the table with a small group of family and friends. One of them asked if we could practice a tradition her family had done for years.

Each person shared one thing they were thankful for, and we continued going around the table again and again. I didn’t expect much from this exercise, but it turned into a highlight of the day. Grandparents to grandkids spoke, and it took over forty-five minutes.

Our entire group was filled with warmth and laughter, reminded of great memories and the gifts of life.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday, and take time to reflect on all you have to be thankful for. It may bring a smile to your face and joy to your heart—and both of those are good for your health.
