I am having a hard time not using the usual clichés and trite expressions that have always surrounded Thanksgiving. Now, I could follow the liturgical calendar, where the readings are all about the end times and suggesting we had better be preparing. Or I could go with the secular calendar which has had us thinking about Christmas since Labor Day. So how do we squeeze in this day in our lives.
Maybe it could just be consideration of this question. Is Thanksgiving a season of the year or a state of mind?

common days into Thanksgiving,
turn routine jobs into joy,
and change ordinary opportunities
