Giving Thanks One Item at a Time

Thanksgiving is less than a week away, and the pressure is mounting. Grocery lists, grocery lines and grocery confusion. “Why do we make this every year when no one really likes it?”

What do you really like? To have a mindful Thanksgiving, let’s take 15 minutes to work on a list that’s more pleasant to construct than your Turkey Day oven timeline. List the things that you are thankful to have.

This year, I followed the advice of “Simple” blogger, author and podcaster Tsh Oxenreider. We put our gratitude list on a pumpkin. Mine is a fairly messy Sharpie-filled pumpkin, and Tsh’s was so fancy in nice block print in a circle around the pumpkin. A pumpkin, a journal, a simple piece of paper. Whichever way, that’s what Thanksgiving is all about, Charlie Brown.
