                                    Why Give Thanks?

       For many of us Thanksgiving is a very important holiday and one that is taken with the utmost humility and grace. Some people do not have a clue what it is. Some are foreigners who never celebrated this holiday in their previous home prior to immigrating to USA. So for these reasons enlightenment may be appreciated in some form or another. It is my understanding that the first Thanksgiving happened due to the puritan population that came to this country clueless of the horticulture process and would have otherwise starved to death had the Native Americans not extended a helping hand in teaching them how to farm and cultivate the land.  So the end result of a bountiful harvest came a great celebration to come together and celebrate all the hard work and fruits of their labor.    

      So in turn in modern times we come together to share food, fellowship and time with those who matter the most to us. We take time out of our busy schedules to help those who may be in need, shut in or physically disabled. No deed is too small or goes unappreciated by someone in need. Especially this time of year and as the weather turns colder. I hope you keep this in mind the next time you think about doing something nice for someone or helping out in a soup kitchen during Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
