I am a fan of Soul Pancake, a media and production company that gets us thinking about really important stuff. As we get ready to gather around the Thanksgiving table, I was struck by their “What Actually Feeds A Family” video which you can watch below.

Sure, turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie will be an integral part of so many of our Thanksgiving dinners, but Soul Pancake reminds us that the conversation around the table is what really nourishes our minds, bodies and souls. Don’t rush through your meal. Put the technology away and use the time to figure out what really matters to the people with whom you share the holiday. Listen to each other. Learn from each other. Most importantly, together, share what
you are thankful for. In doing so, you’ll make your Thanksgiving table a sacred space. And remember, when dinner ends Thursday night, you can recreate that sacred space all over again Friday night.

Cheryl, Abigail and Jonah join me in wishing you and your family a meaningful and happy Thanksgiving.
