If you want to guarantee the best Thanksgiving holiday you have ever had, here is a surefire way.
Often the football games, children, families catching up understandably affect the spirit of a holiday whose reason for being is the expression of gratitude.
So, try this as you sit down and dig into the turkey and all the goodies.
You be the one to get everyone’s attention just before the meal begins and say something like this to the person(s) who prepared the meal looking them directly in the eye.
“I want to express to you how much we appreciate the time and love that you put into this meal. All of us at this table are thankful that you made all of this happen so that we might be together today.”
There are two key elements.
You taking the lead.
And you expressing gratitude for the group.
Don’t be surprised to see teary eyes and a wonderful human relations appetizer for dinner.
It’s also a great teaching lesson to children gathered at the table.
Try it and report back in comments.
And have a very Happy Thanksgiving.
