Thanksgiving Week

I remember the stories about the first Thanksgiving that I studied in elementary school.  It might not be completely factual, but there is no doubt that, in many ways, our lives are so much easier these days.  I am so grateful I don’t have to shoot Thanksgiving dinner!  Even though life has its troubles, there is much for which to be thankful.  If we aren’t careful, we can get in the habit of negative thinking, negative speaking and even negative behavior.  This is a great week to make a decision to think positively, speak positively and behave positively.  It doesn’t mean that you don’t have rational thought.  Of course, we can’t help but see the positive and negative, but what I choose to bring more of into the world is the positive.  Children watch you, listen to you and then behave like you.  Give them the example that will support them in life.  As a young girl in my life said about 15 years ago as we sat down to dinner, “let’s do that thing where we go around the table and everyone says what they are thankful for.”  Happy Thanksgiving!
