Thanksgiving is more than a big meal and a football game. Especially on Thanksgiving Day, we all count our blessings. But as much as possessions and feelings, gratitude is itself a gift. Three essays on grace, thankfulness and joy help you remember the things in life worth appreciating, set the mood for the day and help you reflect on the real meaning of the holiday. Plus a collection of prayers and toasts give you words to say at the table. These essays first appeared in The Dallas Morning News on Thanksgivings through the years.

About the Author
Leslie Garcia can't quite believe she has worked at The Dallas Morning News more than 25 years. During that time, she has ridden high above earth in a paraplane with a broken communication system; interviewed Morris the Cat and followed an elderly homeless man through a predawn aluminum-can search in a rather (OK, a very!) dangerous part of town. Her favorite downtime activities include working out, calling a sister or a friend or her mom, and checking her son's mom-tolerance mood.
