First Thanksgiving

Jan 01, 1970 / Holidays     

As Indians and Pilgrims sat down together that first Thanksgiving day, they not only gave thanks for their food and their bountiful harvest, but also for the relationships they shared with each other and with new friends. So tomorrow, before you sit down to a feast of turkey and all the trimmings, take stock of the relationships your family has nurtured over the last year. Which relationships are stronger? Which ones helped you through a rough time? Which ones need to be cultivated? This Thanksgiving, enjoy the bounty of your current blessings, and make sure you plant relationship seeds for the future. Hear one father's special prayer for Thanksgiving, and then send your kids to school with some of these great Holiday Lunchbox notes to make their day.
