Happy Turkey Day!
Halloa hi, hunties!
Your resident Queen is back with a grateful heart filled with love and appreciation.
In the US of A the people celebrate Thanksgiving on this day. Have you ever stopped and think about everything you are grateful for? Everyone worldwide is in such a panic and stress especially with Covid still hanging over our heads, but I urge you today to stop all the negative thoughts and sit down and really think about what are you grateful for, even if you are not living in the USA.
I am thankful for a comfy bed every night and a beautiful morning with new adventures every day. I am thankful for the food I have and the clothes on my back. I am thankful for all my friends and loved ones who support me and even to those who doesn’t, because it just makes me stronger in what I believe in and do. I am thankful for my parents who helped, taught and raised me. I am thankful to my haters, because without you the other people won’t know about me. I am thankful for my health, my breath, my mind, my voice, my smell, my eyes, my touch, and all my abilities. I am thankful for love, because without it, the world would be a very lonesome and dark, evil place. I am thankful for rain and for sunshine. I am thankful to fruit that turns into wine. I am thankful to all professionals including, but not limited to Doctors, Nurses, Teachers, Lawyers, Safety Officers (including Police, Fire Brigade, Metro Police, Security Officers, etc.). I am thankful that I am able to write my fourth blog and I am thankful to everyone reading this, because you have eyes and hands and a healthy mind to be able to do so.
Thanksgiving began as a day of giving thanks and sacrifice for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. It is celebrated on the second Monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States and around the same part of the year in other places. Thanksgiving is a national holiday celebrated primarily in Canada, Central Africa, and the United States. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thanksgiving]
Colonists in New England and Canada regularly observed “thanksgivings,” days of prayer for such blessings as safe journeys, military victories, or abundant harvests. Americans model their holiday on a 1621 harvest feast shared between English colonists and the Wampanoag. Canadians trace their earliest thanksgiving to 1578, when a Martin Frobisher-led expedition celebrated safe passage. In both Canada and America, family and friends gather for a feast on Thanksgiving. Traditional fare in America often includes turkey, cranberries, and pumpkin pie. Parades and football games also have long associations with the holiday. Sarah Josepha Hale campaigned for a national Thanksgiving in the United States during the 19th century, eventually winning President Abraham Lincoln’s support in 1863. He and subsequent presidents proclaimed a national day of thanksgiving annually until 1941, when Congress made Thanksgiving official by specifying the day of its celebration. In Canada, Parliament established a national Thanksgiving Day in 1879.
I once read on Facebook that a positive thought every morning can change your whole day. Try it and you will see the difference it makes. Have a thankful heart in everything you do.
I personally think Thanksgiving should be celebrated worldwide!
Happiest of Thanksgiving and always count your blessings.
Lots of Love,
