Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because it asks us to actively consider the things and people for which we’re thankful. What a world we would be if everyone sought ways to express thanks every day!
I’d like to invite you to take the day off tomorrow. From worry, if from nothing else. Whatever it is you have to worry about on a daily basis, don’t think about it. All those details will still be present a day later, and so many of the things which deserve our thoughts and thanks are ephemeral… Instead, spend some time actively thinking about the things in your life for which you can be grateful. Perhaps it’s that you’ve got a job, or that your loved ones are safe and healthy. Perhaps it’s that you have really good friends who support you, or that you have friends and neighbors whom you can support.
Perhaps you have found yourself in a relationship so loving and generous you’ve decided to spend the rest of your lives together. Perhaps it’s seeing so many of your friends, family, and neighbors genuinely happy for you.
Life will always present us with moments we wish we could forget. It’s important not to allow those moments to crowd out the myriad ways in which life also gives us moments of joy. If we’ll hold those bright moments closely, those best forgotten won’t seem as dark.
Know as you count your blessings tomorrow that we here at Each & Every Detail are thankful for you. We’re thankful you choose to share your biggest, most happy day with us.
Have a safe, relaxing holiday. Happy Thanksgiving!
