Thanksgiving is a time for football, turkey and a house filled with family members, but it's also an ideal time for pausing to reflect and count your blessings. Regardless of your religious leanings, take a moment before dinner to offer a Thanksgiving prayer in front of family and guests.
Use Brevity and Honesty
Keep remarks simple and brief; after all, the turkey is getting cold. Express honest thanks to the being in which you believe for not only the food you're about to enjoy but the ability to spend the holidays surrounded by loved ones. Because Thanksgiving is an ideal time to give general thanks, speak briefly about other topics of which you're thankful. Potential ideas include the health of your family, the freedom you enjoy in your country and the emotional or physical blessings in your life. Hold hands as a group to share the moment.
