Our neighbours to the south in the USA will be celebrating and giving thanks today.
It's a reminder for us to count our blessings.
Being thankful is something that I try to do each and every day.
Gratitude is a powerful tool...
it's especially important as it brings perspective and humility.
We have much to be thankful for and one does not need to go far to see that.
It might be the homeless person on the street whose hands are out
the young child who comes to school hungry
or the confused elderly woman in the grocery store who is having trouble figuring out what to put back as she does not have enough money to pay for all the groceries.
Take a moment
I'm remembering my father today
as families gather to share a meal
there are many loved ones who will be missed...
reflect and give thanks
not just today
for the rest of your life
for as long as you live
it's very humbling
(I'll get down from my soap box now and stop pontificating!)
