My online fasting support group is mostly Canadians and they don’t get the Thanksgiving thing. It is uniquely American. I have always felt it brings the country closer together, at least for one day; before we all go out shopping.
As a child Thanksgiving meant food, glorious food!
For many years I thought Thanksgiving = the food.
Now I think of Thanksgiving as all the other things outside of food preparation.
For me that is family and friends and reminding myself how grateful I am to be on the planet.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving celebration this week. I am very thankful for my work family and my nursing career. Both have brought so much into my life!
Enjoy the celebration by eating to satisfied. Have a plan for the day and commit to it. Eat what you really like and don’t eat the things that are just there.
