Thankful & Giving: 10 Ways To Have A Happy Thanksgiving.


Thanksgiving is a time to laugh together, cry together, pray together and count your many, many blessings. Before you gather with those you love, sharing a hefty meal in which the calories do not count, let’s reflect on a few ways to be extra THANKFUL & GIVING this year.


10 Ways To Be THANKFUL & GIVING And Have A Happy Thanksgiving

1. Set your differences aside with others

2. Love like Jesus loves

3. Say a prayer before the Thanksgiving festivities even begin

4. Smile at every person that you encounter 

5. Take the time for each person to say what they are thankful for

6. Show respect to your elders by serving them first

7. Give a compliment to at least 3 family members

8. Share what God may have laid on your heart for a family member to receive

9. Offer to help clean up the Thanksgiving meal

10.Thank God before you fall asleep on Thanksgiving night for another day with those that you love. Life is short and as crazy as our families and friends can be, they are still the ones that we love the most.

I am beyond blessed to have God, my family, my friends and my Church family.

GOD IS MY ROCK

FAMILY IS MY STATE OF CONSTANT COMFORT

FRIENDS ARE THE ONES THAT LOVE ME EVEN THOUGH THEY DO NOT HAVE TO

MY CHURCH FAMILY HELP TO SHAPE & GUIDE ME INTO WHO I AM IN GOD

FOR EACH OF THESE I AM FOREVER THANKFUL & I WILL GIVE MY ALL  TO HAVE A HAPPY THANKSGIVING THIS YEAR!

I PRAY MANY BLESSINGS OVER ALL OF YOUR FAMILIES THIS THANKSGIVING SEASON!

  1. Thank you for these great and practical tips for this Thanksgiving season. I love your encouragement and passion in each of your posts! You’re always like our very on team Jesus cheerleader to live life the best we can! 🙂

  2. Great list, Keisha! If I do it from now to Thanksgiving, it will almost be a habit. (I read you need to do something for 21 days for it to stick!)

  3. I love your list for Thanksgiving. It can be a stressful time (with certain relationships) but it should always be a time to remember what we are thankful for and to love each other.

  4. I love this list. It gives us some clear targets to aim for and the tips will set the tone for a wonderful celebrations! I’d like to print it out!

  5. I love every one of these, so much!! I made a pinterest board “Thanksgiving” for this and I want to come back to it and share it over and over next week!!

  6. I celebrated my Thanksgiving last month (I’m Canadian) but I like how you mentioned doing a prayer AFTER the festivities. I never though of that. I’ll make sure to do that next year.

  7. Thanks for sharing your ideas on how to be thankful this season! Here in China we’re not with family on Thanksgiving, but we do come together with our school community. It’s a huge bash with tons of food for everyone and a football game after. I really would not have it any other way since Thanksgiving feels so much more meaningful and full of thanks with a ton of people gathered together to bless and pray for our upcoming year. I think I should write about this actually. 😉

  8. I love this list! All of these are so important to have a happy Thanksgiving – not only now but always! 🙂
