Susan's Musings

I was at Walmart on Sunday which was Halloween. The aisles were empty of costumes and candy but were already being filled with gift wrap, ornaments and all the accompanying Christmas décor. What happened to Thanksgiving? As a nation obsessed with consumerism have we forgotten that holiday and replaced it with a Black Friday mentality?

It’s true that the current holiday has moved a long way from the original celebration back in Plymouth where the few surviving people gathered with the natives to share what little bounty they had gathered. There was no cranberry relish, no sweet potatoes with melted marshmallows or green bean casserole. What there was as they gathered with truly a feeling of thankfulness. They had survived the trip across the Atlantic in a ship hardly worthy of a cruise on Flathead Lake, managed to scrape the ground enough to plant a few crops with the aid of the natives who understood the conditions. Many of them were indentured to the wealthier benefactor that had paid for their passage. Their homes were bare shelters with no conveniences that we now consider basic necessities. Winter was looming which in coastal Massachusetts can be brutal, but they stopped and gave thanks.

How often in our busy chaotic lives do we stop and give thanks? I know for myself it is much easier to focus on the things I want or think I need than on the many blessings that I have. If I took the time to truly count my blessings, the list would be amazing. I am blessed with a loving family, a wonderful place to live and call home and most importantly the freedom to be who I want to be. I can be the crazy lady who turns 70 and buys a quilt store or takes a day off and sits in my pjs and reads all day long. I can spend an hour on the phone talking to my daughter and son in law about the curly haired pigs they are raising. I can go home at the end of the day to my pups that are so excited to see me they just about turn themselves inside out with joy. I can sit and enjoy a glass of wine while my husband, who has taken over most of the house chores, finishes up dinner prep.

I am truly bless and so thankful. Join me this month and remember all the things we have to be THANKFUL for as individuals and a nation.
