As we celebrate Thanksgiving I'm mindful of not just the history behind the tradition. There's a great reason for this holiday and many moments in history have helped define it.
But we need to personalize it. What are we really thankful for? What is it that we really appreciate ourselves? Far above anything an abundance of food on the table could alone signify, we are blessed.
i heard it expressed this way earlier, a quote by President Calvin Coolidge tweeted by a friend: "We should find our justification for Thanksgiving by carefully comparing what we have with what we deserve."
So, with that idea in mind, we're off to observe an old tradition by looking at our present and comparing what we have with what we deserve. We're thankful for each and every one of you, our readers. Happy Thanksgiving from everyone at All the Biscuits in Georgia.
