being thankful

Now that it's over I think I've decided that we've got Thanksgiving all wrong.

It's not about buying MORE food, it's about being thankful for the food that you have.

So maybe we should be promoting a day where we all look inside our cupboards and cabinets and pantries and refrigerators and make a meal of what we have. Then gather around as a family giving thanks for the blessings we have received and the goodness our hard work has provided us with throughout the year.

Be thankful for hamburger helper, or spaghetti and meat sauce or chicken wings and mac and cheese.

We don't need to spend $150 for one meal to prove we are thankful. We should just be thankful for what we have, because what we do have we have in abundance.
