This is a special day when people gather together to share food, thoughts and good times. You join with family you haven’t seen for a long time. And, oh yeah, people watch a lot of football. 

It’s extra special for me because I was married the day after Thanksgiving in 1984. So every time it comes around I think about how happy I felt that day. I was married for 32 years before we divorced. Sadly, my ex-husband Carl died on Sep. 9. But I am grateful to have had that time in my life. 

There are so many ways to explain Thanksgiving. The Bible says you should always be thankful because nothing comes to a sleeper but a dream and God opens the door only for those who have faith. 

The simplest way to look at the holiday is to be glad about what you have and be happy with what you get. And remember that many, many people have nothing.
