As the hot summer cools and turns to fall, along with the turning of the leaves and apple and pumpkin season, comes one of the most important holidays of all. Thanksgiving!    Thanksgiving is not just about tons of good food and all day watching football.  It is not just about getting together with family or friends and eating until you can hardly move.  It is about truly giving thanks for all of the blessings in your life.

Thanksgiving is about gratitude and about letting those who you are thankful for know it.  It is a time to reflect on all the good you have in your life, even if you are also struggling with  heavy burdens or sadness.  Finding even the smallest things to be thankful for can start to change your life for the better.

So what should you be doing this Thanksgiving to truly show your gratitude for the important things in life?  Start by humbling yourself and actually sitting down and making a list of all the things you are thankful for.  It does not matter how big or small they are.  Really think.  Are you thankful for your children, your spouse, a new job, not losing your job, your pets,  the flowers in your garden, your best friend, and the list goes on.  Really write them all down, don’t even thing about it. Just write.  And be sure to include all the people you are thankful for. As a matter of fact, it is good, for the next year, to start a list and add to it through out the year.  Every time someone does something nice that you are grateful for, write it down.

One you have your list, look at all the people on that list.  Think about how it will make them feel to get a phone call or even better a call and a greeting card in the mail from you, telling them how thankful you are for having them in your life.  How do you feel when someone sends you a real card, that you can touch and feel, put on your counter or mantel?  How does it feel to know that someone appreciates you or something you did for them?  Pretty good I am sure!  This is why you want to let people that mean something to you, know it!

It is so simple, all you have to do is go to the store and pick out a nice thanksgiving card, write a short note and put it in the mail.  Those few minutes of time, will make somebody’s day, week, or more.   What is better, is that you can even do this online, but still send them a real card by postal service. This makes it super easy to do by simply choosing a nice Thanksgiving day card, typing in your message, even uploading some pictures if you like, and then paying about $1 or so per card plus postage, and clicking send.  And the next business day your card will be custom printed, stamped, and mailed out to let that person know how thankful you are for them.

Don’t wait, send a thanksgiving card today, choose from hundreds online, and show your gratitude for those who mean something in your life!
