A Culture of Thanksgiving

Tomorrow is a long standing tradition of family, food and American football. What's not to love? Thanksgiving provides a reason to share a languid day of feasting and celebrating, till our hearts are content, with those we cherish most.

Don't take this opportunity for granted, and for pete's sake consider making it a daily (or as often as you can) experience. Gather your family around the dinner table, spend time reveling and sharing in each other's company! The pace our society has adopted as a "normal" rate of living life often leaves little room for slowing down to appreciate the moments that can be all too fleeting.

What's to stop us from creating a culture of Thanksgiving in our homes, in workplaces, or in the most fundamental of places, our own hearts? The content of our heart is where our character stems from, it's the source of the words we chose to impart, the attitudes we hold and our perceptions of the world around us.

I'd challenge you (and me too!) to reflect tomorrow (and every day) upon what's important to you, what drives you, what you're thankful for, and what's at your core. The culture of your life, begins with you. Consider marking it a culture of Thanksgiving.

To you and yours, I wish you a blessed and happy Thanksgiving.
