Thanksgiving Blues

See also

For many people, Thanksgiving is a time of mourning. They miss loved ones that they wish were there. They long for circumstances to be different. If you fit this description, I've got some advice that I think just might help you.

1. Make a list of all the good things in your life that you can be thankful for.

2. Instead of being depressed around the house, get out and serve those less fortunate at a soup kitchen.

3. When you begin to see how blessed your life actually is, stop and thank God.

If you do these things, I believe you'll be on your way to a GREAT Thanksgiving!

    I remember the hardest Thanksgiving I ever had - it was at your dad's house, Jason, and it was the first Thanksgiving without Kevin. It seems that every year there are more people missing! Thank you for some positive suggestions. I'm signed up for a 5k that benefits the local food bank!
