But really, what I think I would rather do, on this day before Thanksgiving, is think about what I am thankful for and write a bit about that.
No matter how you feel about Thanksgiving, whether you think it's the best holiday of the year (as lots of people do) or the most barbaric (as lots of people do), the holiday can at least do this for you: it can be a mark in your year where you remind yourself to be thankful for...well....anything. Everything.
It's easy to get immersed in busy. Bogged down in negativity or other people's bad moods or anger. It's easy to give in to complaining and misery and then find company who will help you reinforce those things. It's easy to find bad seeds, plant them and nourish them. I'm not sure why it's so easy, but it is.
The way to fend that off, of course, is to acknowledge all the good things (that you may not even notice) in your life that you probably take for granted.
Here are two of those thing that you are taking for granted:
Do you see how acknowledging such Good Things could Infinitely Improve Your Life?
CAN YOU SEE THIS FACT?
I hope so. We all hope so.
Be thankful for LOVE, wherever you find it.
Be thankful for FRIENDS who are dear to you.
Be thankful for your FAMILY, whether it is the one you were born to, or the one you have made for yourself.
But most of all, Be Thankful for Rabbits. They are Life's True Angels.
It's really time that you learned that.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING FROM THE LILYPAD TO YOU!
