Especially with all that’s going on in our world, it can become easy to get frustrated with all that needs to be fixed – at work, at home, in our country, around the world – but today is a day that has been set aside to say thanks for all the blessings we do have.
Most of us will gather in a warm home around a full dinner table today. Some will turn on a football game while others will turn on the oven. Either way, most of us will get to spend the day surrounded by those we care about.
My family and I will be doing double duty – one side of the family for lunch and the other for dinner. We’ll be missing Kennedy for the first time this year though. She’ll be traveling with the USF basketball team. Nonetheless, it all makes for a busy day, but one that is undeniably filled with laughter (and food).
I hope we all can take a moment this holiday weekend to give thanks for our many blessings.
From the Noem family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!
