You can spend a day relaxing away from home with your spouse and refer to it as a romantic getaway; always remember you may turn any given day into a romantic one.

These are excellent suggestions! One more I’d like to add…have a Thanksgiving feast at home. Buy just the turkey breast, rather than the whole bird, and give thanks for the life that the two of you have created together.

Wow everybody, it’s Thanksgiving Day! I’m enjoying my extra day off, and I am planning to make something fun that will probably involve a moto trip and seeing something new in Sebring I haven’t seen yet.
You write new post at Thanksgiving?

Excellent suggestion and here is mine……….hope you all like it -

Volunteer at your local soup kitchen to serve/prepare Thanksgiving dinner for the homeless and the hungry. You will meet people in your community and you will see how thankful people are for what you do for them. Your depression will fade when you experience how it feels to give to others who truly have nothing. As Christmas approaches, you can check into volunteering for the many organizations that provide services for the needy as well. It’s as simple as checking your local newspaper or doing an online local search. Also check into a church who may be planning special events for the holidays. Your community will be grateful for any help you can give.
