I spent the last few hours in a caregiving situation which prompted me to write a journal note about the trademark of thanksgiving. Almost three weeks ago my husband was admitted to ICU after he had a cardiopulmonary event. It was tense time when a moment seemed like forever. Today I am thankful for the place and people who brought him back to our home. We take for granted the trademark of Thanksgiving. Some think of elaborate dinners, shopping trips and moving quickly to prepare for the Christmas celebrations. I will enjoy thanksgiving starting right now.
