Thanksgiving Holiday

So, for those folks who have not yet sat down to the family table, here is a thought for discussion.

It is my belief that Thanksgiving is THE American holiday. Other countries have Liberation Days, Independence Days, and Glorious Founders Days. We do too.
But it is Thanksgiving that sets us apart. Oh, Canada has one, but I'm thinking that they came along after we set the example.
I love Thanksgiving, more so than Christmas (much more spiritual for me), and even more than The Fourth of July.
For those of you at home, peace, for those of you at a family gathering, more peace, and for those who are traveling, patience.
"If the only prayer we ever say is thanks, that is enough." Meister Eickhart
