THANKSGIVING!

Hi Guys,

I love the Thanksgiving season, because it helps me to look over my life and see that I am blessed a whole lot.  I know that if I have a house to live in and it’s got a bed and some food and I have clothes to wear and shoes to put on then I am blessed.  In the winter when it’s coldest, I have heat in my house and warm pajamas to put on, and a nice cup of hot chocolate to drink while I read my favorite story on my phone or tablet or I have a real book in my hands, then I am thankful. Very thankful.  

So, as this Thanksgiving season begins don’t forget to show thankfulness and thank God for all your blessings.  Also, pray that God will bless other families who don’t have what you have.  Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

Here’s a history of Thanksgiving:

Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday in the United States, and Thanksgiving 2018 occurs on Thursday, November 22. In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. It wasn’t until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.

VETERANS DAY

Hi Guys,

Sunday, November 11, 2018 is Veterans Day.  Here’s a brief history of Veterans Day:

kids_thank_vetVeterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on Nov. 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and Nov. 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938. Unlike Memorial Day, Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans—living or dead—but especially gives thanks to living veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime.

When Is Veterans Day?

Veterans Day occurs on November 11 every year in the United States.

So, be grateful and thankful for all the men and women who serve our great country.  Pray for them and their families, too.

Talk to you later,

Jenny
