Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is an American holiday. We have a "harvest thanksgiving" in the churches. But as every day has reasons for gratitude in some way, why not join the feeling of gratitude which spreads from the blogs of you, my friends. And without a deeper analysis of the American feast, I take the oportunity to express my thank to my late parents, whom I saw in a dream last night, and who knows if they saw me, too. And I want to thank my husband for his constant love, protection and generosity and a sense of humor that it takes to handle me.I know that some of you will say, excuse me, this gratitude is for the Lord. Right, but as a Buddhist, I don't have a personal idea of God.

Actually, the American Thanksgiving is a harvest festival and how religion got mixed up in it, I will never know.

What a lovely posting on this American Thanksgiving Day. How nice that you posted pictures of your parents and your husband. We can find things every day to be thankful for. I have to disagree with my friend Rayna. I do not believe it is a religious holiday--that is what is nice about it. People of any religion--or none--can feast and celebrate with family and friends. Some people when they give thanks, thank God for their blessings. Others, such as I, just feel grateful for life's many blessings. It gives a person a warm feeling inside to realize that life can be good even if sometimes very difficult.
