Give a Guest Book
Sandra Magsamen, author of Living Artfully says that Thanksgiving
is a day to acknowledge and express how grateful we are for all that we have.
"It's a time to stop, honor, and reflect on the abundance, prosperity, people
and lives we are blessed with." Here are her ideas for how you can celebrate
your loved ones this Thanksgiving.
First, give each guest at your holiday gathering a guest
book with their name on it. Pass the books around so each guest can write at
least one reason they appreciate the person whose name is on the cover. Sandra
says when she did this at her holiday party some guests laughed at first. "Then,
as if by magic, each small volume became filled with heartfelt messages. When
the evening was over, every person left with a keepsake that recorded the many
ways he or she was indeed special."
