We are indebted to the blessings of Almighty God. Though we can’t see Him or Her, we witness and experience His or Her presence in the form of parents, family, society, and nature we take inspiration from and live in.
Discover some unique ways to express your gratefulness to all those blessings on the upcoming Thanksgiving (Thursday, November 23, 2023).

Nothing can parallel the charm of your mom and dad. Delight your sweet Mom and Dad by spending time with them. Share their stories, have a lovely Thanksgiving dinner outside with them or take them to Thanksgiving destinations of their choice. The experience counts more than any precious million-dollar gifts. In fact, it’s more precious – because you are there with them their treasured possession – and they would cherish the memory lifelong. If you are stuck with something and think you can’t visit your parents, send a lovely Thanksgiving message to them.

8. Eureka Skydeck 88: Say thanks to Fender Katsalidis
Say thanks to Fender Katsalidis, the man behind the famous Eureka Tower, which gives Melbourne an identity. Eureka Skydeck 88 is a part of the 297.3-metre (975 ft) skyscraper based in the Southbank precinct of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. The suffix 88 is for its position or floor, which is an observation deck from where you can grab the magnificent view of Melbourne including Melbourne’s CBD, sports precinct, and Docklands. The most striking feature of the Eureka Skydeck 88 is its The Edge. It’s a cubical structure made of glass, which projects 3 m (10 ft) out from the building with visitors inside. At the time of allowing visitors to board, the glass remains opaque. Once the glass has fully extended outside, it becomes clear.
9. Eiffel Tower: Say Thanks to Gustave Eiffel
Paris and Eiffel Tower – both are synonymous. The masterpiece, measuring 324 meters ((1,063 ft), by Gustave Eiffel, was constructed in 1887-1889. It’s cited as one of the top attractions in Paris. According to an estimate, it attracts more than 7 million visitors in a year. The unique architecture commemorates the anniversary of the French Revolution. It remained the highest tower in the world until the Chrysler Building in New York City was finished in 1930.
