How To Have a Peaceful Thanksgiving

On Thanksgiving eve,some folks may be dreading tomorrow’s potential conversations over culture, politics, etc ... 

If that’s you, here’s what I suggest:

1. Step away for a minute and think about 3 things you’re grateful for and then decide to take the high road. (Yes, I’m asking a lot, but REALLY — what do you have to lose?)

2. Go after the canned cranberry sauce — you know the one ... it’ll be sitting all alone, quietly quivering on its humble little serving dish, it’s embossed can-lines doing the wave. 

3. Sit at the kid’s table with your shameless helping of gelatinous-berried goodness. 

4. Have a conversation with the 3-year-olds at your table with food in your teeth. Make faces and silly chomping noises as you eat, and appreciate the sensible ones in the room (that would be the kids) as they laugh out loud. 

5. Breathe!

Remember — you can change the room with your positive energy and a little levity goes a long way.

Wishing you all a VERY Happy — and Peaceful — Gratitude Thursday. 

“But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.” James‬ ‭3:17‬
