Thanks Giving Anyone?

While other families discuss things in my family we always end up agreeing to disagree, don't feel sorry for me it's not a sad thing I really enjoy it, you think of it as the kind of thing that spices up life! Yesterday was thanks giving so happy Thanks Giving to everyone celebrating and I hope you guys didn't get food indigestion! Any how, yesterday my dad and I got into one of our so called discussions and the topic was Thanks Giving, I was expressing my admiration for the day and wondering why we didn't have a day like that, my dad the ever anti-american mumbled "we're not Christians, that's why" and the discussion began, he insisted on it being a Christian holiday and I insisted on it being not, the argument went on and on and at the end of the meal we agreed to disagree and moved on to arguing about something else, The Passion of the Christ incase you're wondering!

Although I was pretty sure that it was a secular holiday, I looked it up just to be sure. It first started as a harvest festival and gradually became Turkey day, many countries besides the United States observe this holiday but on different dates. Now back to my question, why don't we have a similar day, a day when we can express our gratefulness to the people we love, and share a big meal together? Wouldn't that be nice?

If there was an Iraqi thanks giving and we were to celebrate this day, I would be thankful for having so many people in my life that love me, for having a roof on my head and all the little things we take for granted, but most importantly having the ability to choose the path I want in life and having a husband that supports my choices no matter what and will always have my back.

So there you have it, that's what I'm thankful for. What are you thankful for?

Have a wonderful weekend,
