Thanksgiving is My Favorite Day of the Year

I absolutely love Thanksgiving. No other day in the year is about so many good things. Christmas should be just as great, but the commercialization has turned the day into a commercial holiday marred with greed and over spending instead of giving and love. But that's for another post.

Back to Thanksgiving. Lets break down my usual Thanksgiving: I wake up whenever I want (traditionally it has been around noon but this year I had a three hour drive to make so it was a little earlier), I throw on some nice clothes and make my way to Grandma's house where I eat food, see my family, and watch football. Who wouldn't love a day like that?

Even more than the sleep, food, and football, I love the emphasis on family and the things that you are thankful for. It seems like everyone is loved on Thanksgiving - people go out of their way to reach out to others who are less fortunate and give them one day away from their problems.

The only unfortunate thing about Thanksgiving is that it doesn't last longer. The world would be a better place if we all lived with the Thanksgiving mindset.

This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for all of the gifts that I have been blessed with. I am thankful for all of the great opportunities that I have had in my life. I am thankful for being able to put food on the table, clothes on my back, and a roof over my head. But most of all, I am thankful for my friends and family.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and are truly thankful for the blessings in your life.
