It’s a sad thing that so many are in such a rush to celebrate Christmas that Thanksgiving sometimes gets overlooked. With Black Friday starting on Thanksgiving Day, we need to take a moment to reflect. When most of us think of Thanksgiving, we think of turkey, football, parades, traditions… Thanksgiving is a wonderful occasion to give special thanks to loved ones, your community and for everything you’ve been given throughout the year. It’s a time to be grateful for one’s health, family, friends, job, home and having food on the table.
Today is the day we say “thanks.
Here are ways to give thanks this Thanksgiving:
Our communities give us so much. A great way to give thanks for a great community is to volunteer. Spend some time working at the local shelters, food kitchens or reading to children in the local library. To volunteer at Until There’s A Cure at (650) 332-3200 or call your local AIDS organization.
