I am thankful all the people in my life everyday!!
If you ask my grandson who is 2 1/2 years old what is Thanksgiving, he will tell you "you eat turkey and get fat". Well, he is partially right.
It got me thinking, I wonder how many family's take the time at the dinner table and to give thanks for more than just food.
I am thankful for life and all that comes my way. For the wonderful and not so wonderful. I am grateful for the many obstacles thrown my way. Without the many bumps in the road I may not have met the many wonderful people who have touched my life and continue to be in my life.
I will end with the definition of "thanksgiving" from Dictionary.com
the act of giving thanks; grateful acknowledgment of benefits or favors, especially to God.
an expression of thanks, especially to God.

a day set apart for giving thanks to God.
