Thanksgiving Celebrations for the Home
AA encourages “An attitude of gratitude” as a healthy practice for recovery and that’s what we seek to instill in ourselves and in our family members. Thanksgiving lends itself to helping us name the many ways we are blessed.
The following suggestions may enable our families to focus not just on being thankful for the food of the day, but also on true gratefulness for the many blessings experienced by our families. Stopping to identify blessings doesn’t mean that life has been easy in the past year. Everyone experiences difficulties and hardships. We can’t ignore the fact that hardships are part of life.
The attached document has suggestions for how to bring this attitude to others and yourself.
