Everyone has traditions. Thanksgiving traditions often revolve around food, family and friends, and sometimes include football. But there are other traditions that people engage in, like Turkey Trots, 5k races, and volunteering. No matter how you choose to spend Thanksgiving, the key thing to include is gratitude. While everyone has problems and difficulties, most of us in the United States have access to things like clean water, decent food, and a host of other things that we simply take for granted.
So, at the very least, no matter how you celebrate Thanksgiving, take a few moments to appreciate the many small miracles you have in your life. It will truly take your breath away.
