Making Minor Musings: Repost

A Letter to Thanksgiving


Dear Thanksgiving,

I know sometimes you get forgotten squished between the candy-gorging Halloween and the Christmas Machine, but I want to pay you my respects on this Thanksgiving Day.   I wonder sometimes it's good that you're forgotten.  I think if I put a light-up turkey on my front lawn it would  ruin the effect.  I like that you are a quiet holiday, one that causes me to reflect on the true meaning of the holiday:  Remembering the oh so many blessings I have.   

 I think of Thanksgiving as  Christmas' quiet brother, the one who doesn't get a lot of attention but it helps Christmas get the right kind of attention.  You see, as I give thanks for Him and remember Him, it helps me remember the true meaning of Christmas.

So I know you are much too mature to ever feel slighted, but I just had to let you know that I honor and celebrate Thanksgiving.  And I will try to celebrate it every day.

Your friend,

Brenda

And in my humble opinion, nothing honors or celebrates any holiday like the Charlie Brown gang.

Wednesday Words: New Blog


Just an official notice to my all those who care.   I have moved Wednesday Words to a new blog called My Wednesday Words.  It will be a little like the Wednesday Words I have done in the past, but a little different.  Wednesday Words now will be focused on humanity and service. 

Making Minor Moments will be about what it says:    Making Minor Moments.  So if you want to hear about my family, Making Minor Moments is the one.  If you wanna a simple discussion and my thoughts on Social Issues I care about, Wednesday Words is for you.  

If you don't care about either, that's okay too.
