Giving Thanks

November is Native American Heritage Month.

We should remember the Indigenous forefathers of our country.

They risked their lives to continue to live here. Thousands were killed in the worst genocide in American history along the Trail of Tears.

We should honor their peaceable worship of nature and the natural world and the Spirit.

It’s why I prefer to celebrate the Giving Thanks part of Thanksgiving.

Not the shop-till-you-drop Black Friday frenzy.

I recommend keeping a grateful journal and writing in it 5 things you’re grateful for as often as possible.

I’m grateful my family is here to celebrate with me.

A Happy Season to You!
