I was never aware of what thanksgiving was or what it meant and what the significance of the festival was. Working with US clients and a regular dosage of F.R.I.E.N.D.S and How I Met Your Mother introduced me to the concept. So basically the festival was originally celebrated to thank god for the harvest, like we celebrate Baisakhi in India. However, later the aspect of the festival changed to be Thankful in general and also to People around you and it prominently involves a Thanksgiving dinner which involves, Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes with gravy, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, sweet corn, other fall vegetables, and pumpkin pie.
I liked the idea of being thankful on a day, gradually I understood the depth of it I have fallen in love with it. Basically my thanksgiving doesn’t have a dinner involving turkey and moreover people don’t celebrate this festival in India. I decided that I would be celebrating this festival on my blog, by being thankful. This is the least I can do, so here are 5 things/people I am thankful to-
1- I am thankful to my parents to give me education, values and love that have lasted me this far and the belief in them which would last me for my entire lifetime.
2- I am thankful to the girl who despite my flaws thought I was okay enough to spend rest of her life with me, for being the angel of my life and making me feel special in way I have never felt before.
3- I am thankful to my God for the character to accept the things I cannot change, strength to change the things which I can and wisdom to know the difference.
4- I am thankful for the age of technology I am living in, for vesting in me the power to speak my minds and blessing me with great people who I can share my minds with.
5- I am thankful for life and all the great pleasures I indulge in.
These are things I am thankful for, I know they are a bit gyaan and serious types but honestly speaking I mean it too. So are you thankful for something around you? Share it here…
