For most families, Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on everything you've been given, and be grateful for all that you have.
This year may be tough for many of us but there is always someone who has it worse. So this year, take the time to give thanks for all that's good in your own life and to give to others who may not be as fortunate as you this Thanksgiving. Donate to a nonprofit that helps the hungry. Or check out your local food bank, which will ensure that the people in your own neighborhood have enough to eat on Thanksgiving day—and every other day of the year. Call your local Meals on Wheels group and offer to drop off turkey dinners to elderly and sick people around your neighborhood. Your visit will make the holiday a meaningful and special occasion to remember. Or Send a phone card or care package to a soldier.
Soldiers stationed overseas don't have the opportunity to come home and spend Thanksgiving with their families, so it's a tough time of year for them.
