Thanksgiving is tomorrow & with it, the start of the holiday season for many.

Thanksgiving Day - a day for Giving Thanks.  A day of Peace & Grace.  Pretty simple.

And yet, in my visits to the grocery store & those "big box stores" this week, what I have seen has been anything but peaceful & graceful...people arguing over parking spaces & yelling at the cashiers.

And tomorrow night, many stores will open around midnight to give people a jump start on Black Friday shopping deals.  Pretty complicated, if you ask me.

It can be simple.  It can be a day spent with others - sharing time, perhaps a meal.  Giving thanks for what we have & sharing that with others.

It can be a day full of Peace & Grace.  A time to pause & enjoy life.  

And the thing about Thanksgiving, is that it doesn't have to be limited to a single day in the year.

Thanksgiving Day can be every day.  Every day can be a day to Give Thanks for who & what we have in our lives.  Every day can be a day of Peace & Grace.  And every day we can share this with others - people we know & love or complete strangers.

Every day can be simply a day of Thanksgiving.

May you enjoy your Thanksgiving Day - may it be full of Peace & Grace.  And may every day be Thanksgiving Day.
