Thanksgiving is a gift. It’s not only a holiday about turkey, parades, pilgrims and football. It’s a package left on the doorstep of our hearts, full of wisdom, strength and solutions. It just so happens to be my favorite holiday, admittedly in part because we celebrate mashed potatoes and pumpkins but mostly because we focus on gratitude. Gratitude is a state of consciousness, a worldview, a perspective, an inner strength. It breeds resilience, happiness and peace.
