Angst Giving?

How did a simple celebration of Thanks turn into a holiday of Angst? Because somewhere along the line we lost the meaning. Instead of joining together to celebrate gratitude for what we have. We’ve created ANGST by taking a simple meal and turning it into an event! Spending too much money (we don’t have) for too much food (we’ll waste). All the while feeling resentful for the people we’ve assembled with. This could be for any number of reasons usually because your expectations or beliefs of the day aren’t congruent. Then  you  may have an over controlling stressed out relative who takes the consistency of the mashed potatoes too seriously!

What ever the reason we’ve replaced gratitude and joy with heartburn and migraines! My advice KISS KEEP IT SIMPLE SILLY! Make the bird the star, one dressing, three vegetables one starch and rolls. Pie for desert and play a board game tell each person why you’re grateful for their presence, and Thank God you live in a country that has abundance and ask God how you can share it…
