My youngest son Jordan, sixteen, returning from
NMMI (New Mexico Military Institute) for Thanksgiving 2010
There are many ways to express gratitude on Thanksgiving Day, however, what caught my eye, was Seth Godin’s definition of a Modern Thanksgiving.
“A modern Thanksgiving would celebrate two things:
- The people in our lives who give us the support and love we need to make a difference, and…
- The opportunity to build something bigger than ourselves, something worth contributing. The ability to make connections, to lend a hand, to invent and create.”
Peace Corps volunteers, Harvey and Patty Gagnon, are in their sixties and doing what Seth Godin said; they are building something bigger than themselves.
You’ll love what Harvey says at the end, “Forget the golf game, there’s always time for that when you’re 92.”
HAPPY MODERN THANKSGIVING TO ALL MY FRIENDS AND NEW CONNECTIONS.
LOVE FROM SONIA.
