Why Won't You Let Thanksgiving be Great??

Happy Thanksgiving! Now, do yourself a favor, and just let Thanksgiving be great. It’s not Pre-Christmas, and despite what Wal-Mart, Target and the other greedy retailers tell you, it’s NOT a day to rush through dinner at grandma’s to buy a bunch of discounted stuff you don’t need.

You know what Thanksgiving is? Above all else, Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks for all things that impact your life, both big and small. It’s a time to be grateful for what God has brought you through and kept you from. Whether it’s the fact that you don’t have to cook this year, or that you’re still standing and gaining strength and wisdom despite heartbreak, job loss, health issues or financial ruin, you’ve got a reason to be thankful.

Also, be thankful for what God is doing in the lives of other people.  After all, the world doesn’t revolve around you, thank God. See what I did there? :)

Thanksgiving is also:
·A time to eat enormous amounts of food and take epic itis-induced naps
·A time to watch football and go see a movie later that evening
·A time to either eat a struggle plate or gag at the sight of one on Instagram
·A time to be annoyed and amused by your friends and family…at the same damn time

Annnndddd, if nothing else, be thankful for this:

You’re welcome. Save me some mac-n-cheese and stay random.
