Family Quotes For Thanksgiving That Truly Embody The Meaning Of The Holiday
Food may often get all of the attention when thinking about Thanksgiving, but it shouldn't. As these 13 family quotes for Thanksgiving bring to the forefront, this November 24th is just as much about spending time with those who you are thankful for as it is gorging yourself on gravy, turkey, and mashed potatoes. In fact, it's much more about spending time with those who you are thankful for — namely, your family and friends (because really good friends are family), than it is about stuffing yourself.
Family is one of the most vital institutions to exist, if not the most important. It is the ultimate symbol of love, and often, self-sacrifice for the betterment of everyone. I know that your family makes you go a little bonkers sometimes (they always seem to know exactly what thing they can say to get you bubbling with anger, don't they?), and especially on a day like Thanksgiving, where you're spending most of the morning and early afternoon crammed together in the kitchen bossing each other around and giving orders. However, despite the unavoidable drama that comes with being a member of a family comes the joy, support, understanding, and empathy of it.
For those of us fortunate enough to be spending Thanksgiving with our families this year, make sure you count your blessings at the dinner table, because they'll be sitting all around you.
