Thanksgiving: an appeal, an invocation; the act of giving thanks. It is a day set apart to give thanks to God.
I can hear some of you now: “Big deal! But what does this all mean?”
We are living in a time of turmoil, a time of dissatisfaction with ourselves, our families, and our country. This can be very upsetting; it can be the reasons for not celebrating what today is truly meant to be.
For one day, we must put aside our differences and be loving toward each other. As we sit around our various tables of feasts, preparing for the upcoming holiday season, whether that holiday is Christmas, Chanukah, or Milad un Nabi, the prophet’s birthday.
We have much to give thanks for this year, primarily that we are living children of God, and with luck, surrounded by friends and family.
So, let’s put aside our differences for one day, eat until we are bursting at the seams, and watch our favorite football team . . . together.
Happy Thanksgiving, to all my loving brothers and sisters.
