Happy Thansgiving 2008!

TEXT SIZE: A A A
Whatever you celebrate at this time of year, I wanted to add my blessings! If you are not quite sure if the holiday of thanksgiving means anything to you, start a new tradition and plan the events with your family.

Here are a few traditional purposes of autumn festivals and celebrations:
  • Give thanks for the harvest;
  • Evaluate the past year, and identify what to harvest and what to plow under;
  • Identify and cut away outworn habits and emotional baggage which are wearing you down;
  • Work for balance and equilibrium in nature or in human affairs; and
  • Give to those less fortunate.

Fall is a time of transformation and pulling in to prepare for winter - so gather those you love and do what you love, to celebrate the blessings in your life!
