Being Thankful

This is the week to celebrate "Thanksgiving Day", the day to give thanks for everything you have acquired up to this point.

We need to be thankful for our own achievements in life. I am not talking about material things in life, things that money can buy, but what you have shared and given others. Everyday we should share some kindness with others, make someone laugh or just be there to give someone a helping hand.

Give thanks for each new morning, for rest and shelter of the night, for health and food, for love and friends, for everything. The joy and kindness from you should be what others are thankful for.

Everyday isn't going to be a happy and joyful day, but don't allow events that happen in your life stop you from being thankful for your life. Don't take thing for granted because time isn't promised to any of us. Be thankful for every moment that you get and enjoy the time you are in now. 

Always be thankful for the life you have and treat it as a gift, today and always. 

One of the best gifts you can give someone is the gift of thanking them for being a part of your life, even if it isn't forever.

Let's us take the time this week and going forward to say thank you just because you are able to.

"Thanksgiving Day is a jewel, to set in the hearts of honest men; but be careful that you do not take the day, and leave out the gratitude." writer E.P. Powell
