Wow oh wow I’m so thankful for everything I have been blessed with. Will I ever say that enough?? Probably not.
Thanksgiving is the ultimate holiday. It’s also always the time I feel a tad bit guilty for not being more thankful each and everyday. I have loads to be thankful for. But the things I’m most thankful for are the amazing, talented, beautiful, sweet, passionate people I get to call my friends and family.
Here’s one of my favorite prayers to think of on this day of celebration. I also love this Thanksgiving Reader that Seth Godin created for you to download and read during your celebrations at the table.
Help Me Thanksgiving Prayer
O God, when I have food,
help me to remember the hungry;
When I have work,
help me to remember the jobless;
When I have a home,
help me to remember those who have no home at all;
When I am without pain,
help me to remember those who suffer,
help me to destroy my complacency;
bestir my compassion,
and be concerned enough to help;
By word and deed,
those who cry out for what we take for granted.
-Samuel F. Pugh
And per the usual, I would like to provide a quick Thanksgiving Gobble Workout you can do in 15 minutes. Be thankful for your healthy, capable bodies. Your body will in turn be thankful to you for working it out before filling it with food.
Remember on this day to eat mindfully and enjoy every bite! Yay for home cooked meals made with love!! Don’t mindlessly stuff those faces, all that leads to is an aching belly.
Enjoy your thanksgiving loves! I’m so thankful for all my readers!What’s your favorite Thanksgiving food? Traditions?
