It’s Thanksgiving and I’m Thankful for…..

It’s one of my favorite holiday weeks, Thanksgiving.  I love having the family over, fixing the big meal, sharing all the fun and chaos that we seem to have.

It is a time to pause and reflect about all the good in our lives and not take our blessings for granted.  There are so many people in need that I hope we recognize what we have and are thankful for it.   But, think about it.  What exactly are we thankful for this year?I guess I would say the, probably, normal things, family and their good health, etc.

What about you?  Where do you fit in?  A new survey of nearly 2,400 people has shed some light on how we fit in to the “thankfullness” category.

Here is what the survey found.

Health of your family – 85%
Family relationships – 84%
Technology makes it easy to stay in touch with family and friends – 76%
Good technology is easily accessible – 68%
Your own personal economic situation – 62%
Work situation – 60%
It’s safe to walk on the streets – 53%
The way people treat each other – 35%
The economic situation in the US – 17%

The survey also sought to resolve a very important issue: Even more important than the Thanksgiving dinner is eating the leftovers. Sixty-five percent agreed with that statement, while public support also strongly supports the idea we want to eat Thanksgiving dinner at home. That’s because 63% say they would rather cook dinner than eat Thanksgiving dinner at a restaurant.

What about you?  First of all, what are YOU thankful for?  Second, are you having Thanksgiving Dinner at home, or eating out?
