Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you’re all getting to spend time with loved ones and stuffing your faces and maybe gearing up for some mad Black Friday action. I hope you’ll also take a little time to be thankful (because it didn’t get that name for nothin’) for all the blessings in your life, big and small. You don’t need to be prayerful or abstract with your thanks – hug your mom/grandmother/aunt/friend and thank them for all the work they put into dinner, thank the guy at the cash register on Black Friday for his help, etcetera.
(While we’re at it, thank you for reading. Seriously. It’s a big Internet and I’m glad you’ve stopped by.)
Saying thank-you will put a little more love in the world, and we always need more of that. These articles have been making the rounds on my Facebook feed – I hope some of you have seen them already – but they make the case for pouring as much love as you can into the world. Ideally everyone in the country has read these by now and there’s no need for me to post them, but just in case, here they are: “I’m Christian, unless you’re gay” and the stunning comments it provoked.
It’s Thanksgiving. Let’s create some reasons for people to be thankful.
