Thanksgiving – a Holiday with Personal Meaning
Each year on the fourth Thursday in November, people in the USA observe Thanksgiving. Other parts of the world have similar holidays to reflect on gratitude, or to celebrate an abundant harvest.
While this day is usually celebrated with family, there are many individual and personal reasons to give thanks and be grateful.
Can you appreciate what you have?
Saying “Thank You” for all your blessings is a beautifully gracious gesture.
It’s not only good for your soul. It also triggers a positive physical reaction in your body, benefiting your health.
Being able to be thankful with a full heart has benefits that reach far beyond one’s own well-being. You’ll set a shining example to those in your immediate environment, teaching them to be appreciative.
Sometimes it takes courage to express your gratitude. And it can be even more difficult to accept a “thank you” from someone else. Do it gracefully – it shows that you have respect for them. Try it out!
We’ll add your Thanks to the Wall
There are countless reasons to be thankful during every day of your life!
That may include having trusted friends, close family members, excellent teachers, a wonderful boss, a new job, a profitable business, good employees.
Maybe you know others who are of service all year long: our soldiers abroad, doctors and nurses, police, firefighters and paramedics, people who quietly do their jobs for your community.
Or how about enjoying reasonably good health, a steady income, an insight or solution for a problem, or even the things you own… you get the idea.
Whatever you’re thankful for, say it in your own way
Make up a note: draw, paint, make a photo collage, write a poem – whatever it is that comes to mind. Put your thinking cap on, and let your creative juices flow!
Make as many thank you notes as you wish – each will be posted to the wall and you get 50 KR points for each. You also get an individual page for your notes, so people can see them there forever.
You may win a virtual ribbon for your entry! They are awarded in the following categories:
