Why You Should Be Thankful


Today is Thanksgiving, and many people will gather with family and/or friends, to enjoy good company and good food.

Some, unfortunately, by no choice of their own, will be alone and hungry, today. If you are one of the fortunate, please pray for them.

If you are one of those who are going through a tough time right now, remember EVERYONE goes through tough times at some point in their life. Be strong and don’t give up.  The tough times don’t last forever. Be thankful for the other blessings that you have had, have now, and will have in the future.

Regardless of how your day is spent, we ALL have so much to be thankful for. If you are reading this, be thankful that you made it to another day. Some who went to sleep last night, did not wake up this morning.

I think the song below conveys the message of being thankful the best. Please read the lyrics….

“Thankful”

Somedays we forget
To look around us
Somedays we can’t see
The joy that surrounds us
So caught up inside ourselves
We take when we should give. So for tonight we pray for
What we know can be.
And on this day we hope for
What we still can’t see.
It’s up to us to be the change
And even though we all can still do more
There’s so much to be thankful for.Look beyond ourselves
There’s so much sorrow
It’s way too late to say
I’ll cry tomorrow
Each of us must find our truth
It’s so long overdueSo for tonight we pray for
What we know can be
And every day we hope for
What we still can’t see
It’s up to us to be the change
And even though we all can still do more
There’s so much to be thankful for.Even with our differences
There is a place we’re all connected
Each of us can find each other’s lightSo for tonight we pray for
What we know can be
And on this day we hope for
What we still can’t see
It’s up to us to be the change
And even though this world needs so much moreThere’s so much to be thankful for

What Are You Thankful For?


I just got home. It felt good to have a key to pull out, a keyhole to put it in, and a door to shut behind me. “Aaaaah, I’m home.”Unfortunately, some people don’t have that. We take the simplest things for granted, sometimes.

Take a moment and think….WHAT are you thankful for?
