I love Thanksgiving. It means that Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year is almost here. These holidays mean so much to me because I get to spend more family time. It’s also a great time to reflect on what I’m thankful for. So many achievements have happened over the year and even though we should always be grateful, there’s something about Thanksgiving that makes it more special. Maybe it’s because it reminds us since the word “thanks” is in the name of the holiday. This Thanksgiving season, what will you be thankful for?
Friends & Family
Whenever we’re having a bad day, the first people we usually talk to are to our friends and family. Regardless of the time and situation, they’ll always lend us their ear when we’re in need or have exciting news to tell. Without them, life would feel incomplete because a piece of our lives would be missing. If you don’t thank your friends and family often, this holiday season is the time to do it. Bake them a special pumpkin pie just for them as a token of gratitude for all they’ve done for you.
Just like our friends and family tend to be there when we most need them, our pet will always have our back. We’re their best friend and vice versa. They don’t talk back to us, they just listen to us patiently. They’re playful, make the best partners and most importantly love us unconditionally. We never give them the proper thanks for being our best friend. In return, buy them a special treat or even better make them something special with your own two hands. You can create your furry friend a DIY toy from stuff that you won’t be needing anymore. Just make sure that the materials are safe to use and won’t cause any harm.
The Ones Around You
There’s a lot to be thankful in life and sometimes we’re so busy with our ongoing lives that we forget to really say thanks to those that help us every day. I’m talking about the ones who do so much in our community such as the gardener who mows our lawn, the city worker who paves the roads or even the campaigner who’s trying to make an environmental change in the neighborhood. People like them deserve a recognition too because they’re going out of there way not only to make your life a bit easier but for those of others. Follow their example and do good deeds in your community. It’s the best way to thank yourself, your neighborhood and the universe.
