turkeyHappy Thanksgiving! There is one word that comes to mind when I think of Thanksgiving and that is gratitude. Throughout the year, we all have a tendency to forget how lucky and grateful we are for all that we have. Thanksgiving is a friendly reminder that being gracious and generous is something we should incorporate into our daily lives, not just one day a year. Thanksgiving is also a great time to reconnect with family and friends to join together and celebrate. 

Let's go back to this word gratitude. Being gracious is often pretty difficult. Most of us, myself included, definitely have trouble giving things up. But as I write this, I am reminded that material possessions are nothing compared to the gifts that Christ has given us: The gift of eternal life, unconditional love, and unrelenting mercy and forgiveness.

So whether you are traveling great distances or staying at home, you are certainly in need of a Thanksgiving playlist on the theme of gratitude. Imagine this, you are traveling by car or plane to a relatives for the holiday and you realize that your Ipod needs some serious updates but you have nothing. You panic, but then remember that DJ Phyre has exactly what you need---songs for your travels. You breathe a sign of relief and and begin listening to my top 10 Thanksgiving songs, plus, of course, those other playlists that are available.
