Wake Up Call! – What About Friendsgiving?

WHAT ABOUT FRIENDSGIVING?

Friendsgiving is an intentional way to celebrate the people who nourish you!

I was smitten by my first Thanksgiving in the US! I adore this holiday of pure gratitude! I love it’s comfortable, unpressured rhythm and delighting in the gift of those gathered. A few years ago, I realized that my Thanksgiving gathering included just a few of the people whom I feel blessed to know.

I wondered what to do about that! Why not create an event or party to offer thanksgiving for the people in my life?

Thus, began a new tradition in our house – something we call Friendsgiving. It’s always a simple affair with simple fare on hand.

Over the years I’ve come to look forward to Friendsgiving as much as I do Thanksgiving. They’ve become part of a continuum of offering thanks and gratitude for the people in my life.

PRACTICES:

  • Each day call to mind the people you interact with and give thanks for one of them
  • Express your gratitude to them for some characteristic or for simply being in your life

Notice how thinking of Friendsgiving reminds you of the rich nourishment you receive from so many.
