Appreciate, Don’t Obliterate: In Rememberance of Thanksgiving

There is a time and place for Christmas…Christmas time. Not meaning to be a “Grinch” but the stress on Christmas so early in the year is a bit over rated.

When one thinks about the order that Thanksgiving and Christmas are in, you realize the focus of each is important too; appreciate everything you have, then share your blessings with others. In turn everyone is blessed. When we remember this, we can better understand “spirit of Thanksgiving” and the “blessings of Christmas” in the order they were meant to be.

In my opinion the value of having my family around sharing knowledge, love, time, and memories is more important than the Christmas tradition of getting presents and yet lacking presence of the ones I love. We (all of us) come closer together as a family, community, church, and nation despite our differences when we take time to appreciate each other for the varying cultures, religions, and customs that make us each unique.

Don’t rush, take it one holiday at a time. “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift! That’s why they call it the present!” Value each moment, lesson, and holiday for what they are; a gift from God.
