Where Did Thanksgiving Go?

The day after Halloween I started to see Christmas decorations going up in stores and around town. Now don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Christmas (it’s the hap-rockwell-thanksgivinghappiest time of the year) but where did Thanksgiving go?

It bothers me that that is now a holiday that seems to get skipped right over. People take for granted what they have and don’t stop to think about what they are truly thankful for.

I have a lot to be thankful for. I am healthy, active, loved by many, I have a great family, great friends, great “kids”, and an overall great life. I had a great childhood and have the best husband ever. I have a great job that I love and it pays well. I live in a country where I can say what I want, live where I want, travel where I want, and I live free. There is always food on the table, a roof over my head, and clothes on my back. What else could I ask for?

Let’s not forget this great holiday.

What are you thankful for?
