Another holiday is upon us when society expects we will act a certain way and experience an approved of emotional response. In a world where everyone is a unique expression of God this expectation is a recipe for disappointment.
None of us experience events exactly the same way. That statement is a given for any of us sharing a Thanksgiving feast with family we’ve not seen in a while. What looks like a wonderful afternoon to us might be a chore to endure for others.
I sincerely hope that with whomever you spend today it is with those who love you as much as you love them. Even if you’re alone you might take time to enjoy the freedom of doing exactly what you want.
The most current unrest in the Middle East or the various news reports on TV can lead one to believe there is nothing about which to be thankful. That would be wrong. Whether you are alone, with a partner or with a large group, please take time to appreciate the good in your life. Be willing to have more of joy and love in the days and months to come.
We are living in one of the most exciting times in the history of humankind. Open to the blessings that are yours to enjoy and share. May you and your loved ones have a joyous and loving Thanksgiving weekend!
In Spirit, Truth and Playfulness,
