Default Thanksgiving blessings

The Mayflower landed in the Month of December. Talk about bad timing. No established food supply, no shelter. The people that celebrated the first thanksgiving day were the ones that survived the first 11 months. Most of us cannot even imagine their experience of gratitude as they sat for the feast of that first Thanksgiving day. On Thanksgiving day, it is that experience of gratitude that is being celebrated. The Pilgrims felt it deeply because they had paid the price. It is not the elaborate turkey dinners and the gathering of family and friends that make us thankful. It is the experience of destitution, of hunger, of hopelessness, of loss and loneliness that we survive that earns us the experience and the blessing of true gratitude. Our affluence buys us the feast but it is the experience of destitution that grants us the blessing of gratitude. Whatever your experience is on this Thanksgiving day, know that God smiles on all of us and laughs in joy when we rise above our trials and emerge with the higher qualities of the soul that can only be won by suffering. Be blessed. Feel blessed. God is giving us what we need. Happy Thanksgiving.

Welcome Cort, to the forum. Thanksgiving is indeed a time to be thankful for our most precious ones in our lives, our kids. Both in the USA and Canada.

Keep your chin up....you are among friends here.

Yes, good reminder. Let us not forget this the other 364 days of the year either.

Welcome to the board if I didn't say that earlier, though I did read your original post I'm not sure if I replied.

Have a great day!
