After that last dollop of gravy has been licked clean off the plate, and the last turkey bone stripped of its meat, all that really matters are a spirit of gratitude and being together with the people you care about the most.
More than all the festivities, we should not forget the real essence of Thanksgiving: giving thanks. To show your appreciation for the good things other people have done for you, you could go the extra mile and send thank you gifts to them. It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant. A simple card with a heartfelt message will do. Some candy or chocolates are also sure to warm their hearts.
Showing gratitude to someone sometimes doesn’t necessarily mean material things. You can do something nice for them. You can give your hubby a back rub after a tiring day at work, for instance. Kids can help their mom clear up the dinner table.
A little goes a long way. Little acts of kindness or tokens of appreciation will make your loved ones feel more loved.
