As we all rush around to shop for the ingredients for the Thanksgiving dinner, sometimes I forget the true meaning of Thanksiving.

The dictionary gives the definition of thanksgiving as:

  • the act of giving thanks; grateful acknowledgment of benefits or favors, especially to God.
  • an expression of thanks, especially to God.
  • a public celebration in acknowledgment of divine favor or kindness.
  • a day set apart for giving thanks to God.


This year, I am grateful for:

  • my supportive, hardworking husband
  • being open to messages from G-d through other people
  • re-kindling my friendship with my cousins in New Jersey and Virginia Beach and friends from grammar school
  • being able to provide high-quality kippah and jewelry designs and clients who appreciate them
  • the chance to be with our cat Buddy in his last days before he went to kitty heaven


Thank YOU!

Here’s a beautiful quote by gratitude habitat:

“Be kind

Be thoughtful

Be genuine

But most of all

Be thankful”
