What Does Thanksgiving Mean to You?

What does the Thanksgiving holiday mean to you?

It’s almost seven in the morning on Thanksgiving day and I am sitting in my living room peacefully typing away as my children sleep quietly in their rooms.  I am usually up pretty early in the morning in order to get my kids up and ready for school but they are off today due to the holiday.  So, why am I up?  Simple, I want to make sure my Thanksgiving feast goes off without a hitch.

I have the Turkey in the oven and all the fixings sitting on the counter (except for the potatoes which are still in the refrigerator for now).  However, as happy as I am to have my Thanksgiving feast already started and all my preparations made what really makes me happy is that I get to spend this holiday with my children.  As a divorced mother I have to share the holidays with my ex-husband so last year I did not get to have my children sitting at the table.  So today is extra special!  

What does Thanksgiving mean to you?  Is it all about making the perfect holiday meal?  Or does it mean more to you?  I think Thanksgiving is about being surrounded by your family and friends and I plan on savoring every moment of it.  This holiday, to me, is about being thankful for having two wonderful children and a family that I adore.  Not to mention a wonderful group of friends that I couldn’t do without.

Happy Thanksgiving!

    What it means to me is that my American friends get the day off whilst here in the UK it’s work as normal. ;-)

    Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of the year but should be more appreciated

    People choose a certain day of the year to be thankful; I believe a person should be thankful all year round.
