The days are dwindling down to my very favorite holiday of the year. Can you guess which one that is? Of course, I am talking about Thanksgiving. Who couldn't love a holiday that celebrates eating? However, my neighbor Bob insists that Thanksgiving is not about food at all, but rather is about "giving thanks." Indeed, Bob has begun spending a few moments each morning on his deck to "reflect" as he calls it, on something for which he is thankful. "It puts me in the right frame of mind for the upcoming holiday," he insists. "You should follow my example, Oliver. After all, you do want to be thankful, don't you?"
Well, duh...of course, I'm thankful. I'm thankful for turkey. I'm thankful for mashed potatoes and gravy. I'm thankful for stuffing....oooooh, yes....stuffing! I'm also thankful for pumpkin pie and apple cider and cranberry sauce. Ooooh, the list just goes on and on.
How about you? What are some things for which you are thankful?
