Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love the season utterly devoted to expressing gratitude.
The kids and I made a Thanksgiving Tree by jamming a stick into one of the potted plants I managed to kill this year. We cut out paper leaves and each day we write something we are thankful for on a leaf. I made my leaves in advance to express many of the ways I'm grateful for my husband's Union and the contributions of the Labor Movement to society. I know, you might think I'm just cheering on the home team, but truly, we enjoy an amazing quality of life because we are a Union family. Furthermore, throughout history the Labor Movement has created opportunities and protection for all Americans.
My Thanksgiving leaves include blessings such as:
- Weekends to Spend Time Together as a Family
- 8 Hour Work Days or Overtime
- Clint's Breaks at Work
