Have a little talk with your sweetie about the Thanksgiving holiday and share your thoughts with each other.
What does the holiday mean to you?
What does real thankfulness and gratitude look like?
What traditions are special?
Are there any new traditions you would like to create?
What do you like? Not like?
How do you deal with extended family?
What would you like the holiday to look like for your family?
I encourage ya’ll to think outside the box and don’t be afraid to buck the usual traditions a bit. Make plans that shape this holiday for the most blessing to your family and others.
To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven. Johannes A. Gaertner
