Put the Giving Back into Thanksgiving

The day before Thanksgiving is the day to tie on an apron and deliver a loaf of bread or other baked goodie to someone in need.

National Tie One On Day
was started by “apron lady” EllynAnne Geisel to help us put the giving back in Thanksgiving.

Her idea is that each of us should use the Wednesday before Thanksgiving as a time of sharing instead of stressing. It’s time to temporarily stop fretting over preparing the large holiday meal and focus on others.

It’s easy to get started. Just take a moment out of your day, wrap a loaf of bread or other baked good in an apron or a towel and deliver it to someone who could use a kind gesture.

This year has been a particularly difficult one for so many of our neighbors, family members and friends, I can’t imagine anyone who wouldn’t appreciate a home-spun surprise like this.

I broke out the bread machine and in just a few hours I had a warm loaf of fresh bread ready. Now it’s time to tie one apron on and share the bounty.

Best wishes for Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at WesternGardeners.com!
