Soon the United States of America will celebrate Thanksgiving.

“Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday in the United States, and Thanksgiving 2021 occurs on Thursday, November 25. In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and the Wampanoag shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. It wasn’t until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.” (From

If you research the first Thanksgiving, you will find that if it wasn’t for the generosity of the Native Americans, they would not have survived.

In addition to the family gathering and the turkey dinner, I like to make a gratitude list. I find that it gives my heart peace.

Here’s my list. All are equally important.
1. God
2. Family and friends which includes the family pets
3. My doctors, the nurses, and staff – without whom I would not be alive today
4. My church
5. Food
6. My home
7. My car
8. Writing
9. Soul Mate Publishing
10. The gift of spending each day and seeing the wonders of life.

Feel free to share some items on your list in the comment box. May your upcoming holiday be safe and happy.

    My home, my jobs, my ability to create. Trees. Flowers. Skies. Full moons. Stars. My blanket. I remember once my sister wrote her gratitude list when she was nine and she wrote I am thankful for my kitten. Which was very nice except she didn’t have a kitten. As I remember she was also thankful for her pencil. I’m thankful for mine. Happy Thanksgiving
