This Thursday is Thanksgiving, and there are plenty of magazine articles, blogs, and websites that will give you all kinds of tips on how to have a perfectly organized and stress-free (are those things mutually exclusive?) Thanksgiving.
I won't try to duplicate those efforts, but instead my simple advice is this:
Remember to give thanks this Thanksgiving!
In the midst of all the cooking, conversing, and consuming, take just a moment to write down, say aloud, or list in your head the blessings you've been given this year. No matter what else happens that day, you'll have truly celebrated Thanksgiving Day.
P.S. My favorite practical tip for easing the Thanksgiving workload? Peapod online grocery shopping and delivery service so I don't have to fight the crowds at the store!
