Thanksgiving Plans?

It's two days before Thanksgiving. Do you know where your co-workers are? Today it's likely they're sitting next to you, behind, around, in the next office, etc. But where will they be on Thursday? Will they be stuffing their faces with turkey and pumpkin pie with their families, or will they be sitting alone in their home or apartment? Sure there are lots of festivities you can partake in from home alone: watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, the dog show (does a dog show come on immediately after the parade for everyone?), football, Christmas movies and, of course, Black Friday commercials. But those "Thanksgiving Things" just aren't as festive when you're alone.



This Thanksgiving, talk to your coworkers, friends, neighbors, and church family about what their plans for Thursday are. If you have an extra space at your table, set it for someone who needs a family. Someone you see every day could be suffering and lonely without you ever knowing. Ask. Do it today! I guarantee you'll be blessed for it!

I've been trying to find someone to fill the extra chairs at our table, no luck yet. I may need to widen my search a bit.

Krista, did you find anyone? It's actually a GOOD thing that you had a hard time finding anyone! Hope you had a happy Thanksgiving.
