Wishing you a great day with the hope of extending the practice of giving thanks.
Today most of us will gather with family or friends to celebrate this Holiday - here in the United States at least. (Other countries have days of thanksgiving but they're celebrated on different dates and in different ways.)
I look forward to a great meal and gathering with family and friends. My mom will make her annual Thanksgiving feast. Lots of food. Lots of left overs.
Today, as we give thanks for all that's good in our lives, think about who we should thank. I advocate thanking God because I believe he's the source of all good things in our lives. Beyond that I suggest thanking those who've contributed to this day of thanks.
- Thank a veteran for ensuring our continued freedom
- Thank a teacher for investing in you so you can enjoy these freedoms
- Thank an elderly person for laying the foundation
Who else should we say "thanks!" to? Let's do more than eat a meal. Let's continue to give thanks.
