Today we take a break from cleaning recipes and tips in order to express out thankfulness. It is Thanksgiving after all.
The first Thanksgiving was a gathering of 50 Pilgrims and 90 Indians the purpose of which was to thank God for their survival and successful harvest.
Our harvest being gotten in, our governor sent four men on fowling, that so we might after a special manner rejoice together after we had gathered the fruits of our labor. They four in one day killed as much fowl as, with a little help beside, served the company almost a week. At which time, amongst other recreations, we exercised our arms, many of the Indians coming amongst us, and among the rest their greatest king Massasoit, with some ninety men, whom for three days we entertained and feasted, and they went out and killed five deer, which we brought to the plantation and bestowed on our governor, and upon the captain and others. And although it be not always so plentiful as it was at this time with us, yet by the goodness of God, we are so far from want that we often wish you partakers of our plenty. Edward Winslow, Separatist who traveled on the Mayflower in 1620.
One of the easiest things to forget in our hectic lives is remembering to be thankful. The mere act of stilling yourself for a moment and naming a handful of things you are thankful for can drastically change your state for the better.
Today we are thankful for our families and friends, our nation and our community. We are thankful for the health and abundance we currently have and all that which is on its way. We are thankful for you the reader and hope that you have a blessed day today and every day.
Have Fun. Stay Clean. Stay Healthy.
Remember to be THANKFUL each and every day!
