Giving Thanks - Thanksgiving

Well tomorrow is November and that means Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Thanksgiving is a time to remember all we are thankful for. But it can also be a time of giving back to someone else, that is what Tie One On Day
is all about.




"Women clad in aprons have traditionally prepared the Thanksgiving meal, and it is within our historical linkage to share our bounty." EllynAnne Geisel
Four years ago, I noticed that Thanksgiving was talked about in terms more commonly associated with stress, than joy. I remembered my mother’s absolute love of Thanksgiving, as a day more than anything else of sharing and gratefulness. So I created National Tie One On Day™ as an annual opportunity to return the "give" to Thanksgiving by sharing our good fortune with someone in need of a kind gesture
National Tie One On Day™ has nothing to do with purchasing anything special or even driving!
Participation is simple. On the day before Thanksgiving, November 23rd this year, pause in the preparation of your own meal, wrap a loaf of bread or other baked good in an apron, tuck a prayer or note of encouragement in the pocket, and tie one on…an apron, of course! and deliver the wrapped bundle to someone without your bounty… a neighbor, friend or family member in need of physical or spiritual sustenance, a bit of recognition or just a kind word.
I know it to be true that whether you live in a high rise apartment building or on a quiet block, no matter which direction you walk out of your own front door, someone deserving of a gesture of kindness is close by.
National Tie One On Day™ is a win-win, for the participant and the receiver. By embracing National Tie One On Day™, you will make someone else’s day brighter.

From now until Tie One On Day I will post aprons pattern you can make along with recipes for bread and baked goods that you can add to give with your apron.
So I am hoping you'll to join me in giving back a little something to someone else.

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
