Colorful Thanksgiving

What’s Your Favorite Color?

My grandkids learned a long time ago what my pat response was to the question, “What’s your favorite color?”

“Why, all of them, of course!”

How in the world can I be expected to name just one color when so many exist? And they all have a reason, a purpose, a place. Each has qualities or aspects that make them perfect for shoes, a wall, a flower, tools, the sky, wire, pajamas, a mug, eyes, screens, bricks, and the list is endless.

Now, I’m not saying you can’t have a favorite color – many do. What I am saying is that my favorite color depends on where it is going to end up. Even putting aside the essay I wrote in college titled The Psychology of Color, I have difficulty limiting myself to One. Single. Color. I appreciate them all, which is the crux of what is being considered here.


Appreciation and the giving of thanks walk hand in hand. Yes, I know you can easily say “thank you” when receiving a gift you don’t appreciate. It’s a matter of politeness, right? But you can’t appreciate a gift without giving thanks for it.

Whether you’re with your large extended family or home alone and eating a microwaved dinner or somewhere between those two extremes, you can have a very colorful Thanksgiving Day.

Use colored pencils, crayons, or just a pen to write what you’re thankful for. For example, using your red colored pencil, you might write roses, apples, dad’s hair, my little red dress. With the blue pencil comes my car, the sky, delphiniums, his eyes. Green pencil in hand, you might choose grass, my pickup, that crazy old tractor, the green diamond I inherited. Pick up the next color and continue on. You get the picture.

If you’re in a group, you can get others to join in the fun and use colorful lists concerning what you have to appreciate or what you have to be thankful for – even if it is your favorite color. 😉
