Thanksgiving minus one

Look! It’s back! Veggie turkey.

Oh, come on. Isn’t he just the cutest thing ever? It’s like pulling your pumpkin decorations out of the attic. He only gets to come out once a year.


You never know. Maybe you just say, “Hey, I know what I’ll bring. The veggie platter that looks like a turkey. But, wait. How did it look again?”

BAM. You have it right here. Happy to serve.

Now,  besides V-T, what else are you bringing to tomorrow’s holiday? Your running shoes for the Turkey Trot? Or, maybe for Black Thursday which I understand is the new Black Friday?

All important, yes, but here’s the most important thing of all to remember.

Bring a good attitude and a plan to connect. Write extra in your gratitude journal. Appreciate the sky, the air, and the people in your lives. Appreciate the people who aren’t in your lives. Do an act of kindness anonymously. Better yet, plan to do that each day between Thanksgiving and New Year’s. That will be the quickest path to the fullest joy you can feel.

I am thankful for you.
