As with October being the Through The Veil Month, now we are into the next of the themed months.  November is the Gratitude Month for a number of reasons.  As I’ve written previously here, First we have Veteran’s Day, ANOTHER day to thank the veterans and be respectful of them.  Were it not for this special select group of people we as Americans wouldn’t be so fortunate to live in this country.




The second important date in November that is significant to gratitude is Thanksgiving. Giving thanks is RIGHT there in THAT word.  We should be thankful EVERY day of the year. Seeing as the holiday, Thanksgiving falls in November, that’s the day set aside.


The original intent of the holiday was to honor the native Americans who helped the colonists who arrived here survive the first harsh winter. The colonists gave thanks and “broke bread” with the native Americans who knew what to plant, who knew what to build the structures that would withstand the climate.


We carry that tradition forward today by gathering family and friends together to celebrate the holiday.


Being thankful, being grateful is a big part of who I am and that plays a significant role at Wisdom and can be seen from the following link:
Being Grateful


So combining all of this together you can certainly see how November is seen by many as The Gratitude Month.


Be Happy!  Be Well! Be Positive!
Blessings to you.


Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;
We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying.  For there truly is no end.

    I live with a gratitude attitude every day, Chris, but am always glad for the extra “push” in November.
    Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

    I am not quite sure that the ultimate object of thanks were the Native Americans.. I am fairly certain the Supreme Being- along with the Pilgrims’ new-found friends- was the recipient of their Thanksgiving offering.
