Midday Muse: The True Meaning of Thanksgiving

This year, some friends are volunteering on Thanksgiving Day to cook dinner for the parents of children staying at a Ronald McDonald House. Last year other friends spent time filling boxes at a food bank the day before Thanksgiving for families in need. One of my family members also makes it a point to volunteer during holiday weekends at animal shelters, since the dogs and cats get fewer visitors over those days. While I have yet to volunteer on the day of Thanksgiving, it's something that I am considering more and more. Perhaps next year I'll take time out from entertaining friends and family to volunteer at a shelter, church, or food bank.

Do you volunteer during the Thanksgiving holidays? Does anyone you know? If you have any great stories about giving friends, family members, or acquaintances, please share them below!
