Happiness is Thanksgiving, Kindness & Gratitude
Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings. ~ William Arthur Ward
The holidays are a very stressful time for everyone and an exceptionally hard time for some. So, until the New Year I’ll be posting a Holiday Happiness post each day to try help folks out who are struggling. As always you can reach out to me at Happinesskane@aol.com for a kind word or someone to listen. ~ Rev Kane
I LOVE THANKSGIVING !!!!!!!!
I really do, I love the holiday, I love this time of year, the weather, football season and eating, man do I love cooking and eating. So, when you combine all of these elements together, all on ONE day, well, that makes me a very happy man. This is an especially happy year as I was in Canada for their Thanksgiving so I get TWO this year!
As I sat down to write my annual homage to my favorite holiday I thought I should see what I’ve written before and holy cow, I wrote a lot. So for this year’s Thanksgiving post I’ve decided to repost some of the old ones and include a series of links on pieces I wrote about kindness and gratitude because that’s really what this is all about. As much as the food and the football and the fall weather are spectacular, in the end it is about being thankful for what we have and finding ways to be kind to others. Truly, if we could just concentrate on those two things in life this would be a better world.
So, enjoy some Thanksgving Day reading, relax and a have a very happy day my friends ~ Rev Kane
