A Day to be Thankful

Recently, I was filling out a questionnaire.  Sort of a "who are you and what are your interests" type thing.  It made me stop and really think about why I do some of the things I do and where I get my inspiration from.  In most cases it came down to family.  The family I came from made me who I am today. And my existing family gives me a reason to live and enjoy life.
I know the Thanksgiving Holiday is based on the first Americans being thankful for their freedom.  And they were thankful for the people that helped them set up this country. 
But, personally, I think this is a good time to additionally be thankful for family past and present.  No matter where you are from or what your origin is.  To focus for one day on what family really means isn't a bad thing.
Along with a fair amount of good food, I intend to enjoy tomorrow to the fullest.
