When most of us reflect on past Thanksgiving holidays we remember family time where tables were set before us with bountiful spreads of turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, pies, cakes and more pies. And on Thursday many will still honor these family traditions of food and giving of thanks.
Thanksgiving is a holiday set aside for the giving of thanks. And just hours later we move to the Christmas season. The season of giving. The giving of thanks...the season of giving.
W. Clement Stone, author, philanthropist, and businessman viewed being thankful in a very different way. He said, “If you are really thankful, what do you do?, You share”.
Over the past few weeks many churches and organizations have worked countless hours preparing to cook and deliver Thanksgiving meals to the needy. Many will be offering community meals and several restaurants will remain open to make sure no one is without a meal on Thanksgiving Day.
As you share in the warmth of family and friends on Thanksgiving Day, be thankful and if you have the opportunity to share your blessings and Thanksgiving with those less fortunate, do so.
Casey and Company would like to wish you and your families a very blessed and happy Thanksgiving Day.
