Sharing My Thanksgiving Gratitude List With You

Gratitude List

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you are celebrating it with delicious food surrounded by your loved ones and feeling extra thankful today. To tell you the truth, I have never had a Thanksgiving celebration before, though I would very much like to. Someone suggested on twitter yesterday to start my own Thanksgiving tradition.
