This is our Annual Thanksgiving Special and the column referenced is, “What Does Thanksgiving Mean to You?” and the discussion is about Thanksgiving, with quotes from readers, the Bible, famous and less famous people. Also relevant is “Ten Things I Am Thankful For This Thanksgiving.”
Welcome to 2013 and Happy New Year. Our first #DadChat of the year took on the themes of my last two columns, New Year’s List: Seven Attitudes of Gratitude and Christmas and New Year’s: Best Time of the Year, 12 Reflections. We talked about GRATITUDE Thursday, January 3 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PT/9:00 – 10:00 p.m. ET. It was quite inspiring as you can read in the transcript. Join us EVERY Thursday at the same time, same place, same hashtag!
I love Thanksgiving. It has everything a great holiday should have. Food food and more FOOD! Thanksgiving, of course, gives us all the opportunity to gather with friends and family to actually reflect on the bounty of our lives. Gratitude is truly one of the most important ingredients for happiness and Thanksgiving offers just the forum to express those feelings.
Occasionally I enjoy doing list columns and my mind has been a bit more focused on doing lists ever since I became a contributing writer at 12Most.com. So, herewith is my list of ten things to be thankful for on Thanksgiving. Please add any that you believe belong in the comments section below!
