With all the political unrest currently in our country, let’s all try not to politicalize Thanksgiving this year. Instead of pointing out some of the stories of the first American Thanksgivings might be more fiction than fact, let’s instead embrace the true spirit of the holiday—a time to give thanks for our harvests—be that literally or figuratively.
For me, I am grateful for another year. Grateful that I have a comfortable home, food on the table, family and friends who I treasure, wonderful furbabies, and a career I love, with readers who have been amazing.
And when Thanksgiving is over and we move into the Christmas season, perhaps we start thinking more of those who are not as fortunate as we are, and ask ourselves, what can we do about it?
