Todd Glassberg – Thanksgiving Views from the Front Porch

Todd Glassberg welcomes my regular followers and the casual reader on this Thanksgiving Day.

Why is it during the holiday season from Thanksgiving to Christmas people think it’s time to feel gratitude to God for all the good things in their life. It is a time to  acknowledge the good deeds of fellowmen and be thankful. Todd Glassberg’s view is that people should feel this way all year long, we just have limited focus to sit down and postulate. These Thanksgiving thoughts give us an insight as to what people truly feel about it.

  • Life can be very trying. When your child is hungry, your body wracked with pain, or you have no idea where you and your family will find a place to sleep, it’s hard to find something for which you can be thankful. So, for just a few minutes on Thanksgiving Day, step outside your situation and just “be”. Find something,        no matter how small, to be thankful for because in giving thanks, you will be lightening your load, even if for only a moment
  • People in this world live in squalid conditions, battling  hunger and the aftermath of tragedies, they are terrorized in the name of religion and they want to come to America, the land of opportunity, in the hopes of building a new and better life. These original immigrants, called Pilgrims, were welcomed by the inhabitants of America, the Indians, who were hospitable to the newcomers in every sense of the word. How is it then that the descendants of the Pilgrims managed to            take over all the land in America and banish the Indians to hot, arid reservations in the middle of nowhere? Somehow, that has never felt right to me. Do the Indians celebrate Thanksgiving?

 

We sure do , we have adopted the platform and values as a baseline of the American ideal.

Who does not thank for little will not thank for much.   (Estonian proverb)

  • Thanksgiving thoughts are the kind of thoughts that we should  have all year long. For it is the citizens with thankful hearts whose lives are filled with song. We should take time for kindness to those we hold most dear,and just extend a helping hand to others through the year. Let’s set aside some quiet time and share it with  a friend. For friendships brings a special joy and pleasure without    end. So may the blessings of this day that I would ask for you, now fill you with Thanksgiving Peace that lasts the whole year through!
