Everyday Thanks
November 27th, 2013 12:40 PM

Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday that gives us the chance to gather with our family and friends to give thanks around a meal for the many blessings we have been given.  However, we should not wait for one special day each year to be thankful for what we have.

An "attitude of gratitude" is what we should all practice each and every day.  Even though our country is going through many painful changes and adjustments, we still enjoy more freedom and more material goods than any other.  We have such an abundance of blessings here that we sometimes forget to give everyday thanks and instead we take many things for granted.

When I suffered through a painful personal loss years ago, a good friend bought me a "gratitude journal" in which I was to write just 5 things I was thankful for every single day.  It was amazing the things that came to mind when I normally overlooked them.  We can be thankful for our health, our jobs or retirement incomes, our spouses, our children and grandchildren, but what about the warmth from the sun, the refreshing rain, the beautiful flowers that surround us, the singing birds in the mornings, the serene lakes and ponds . . . . .  the list is truly endless! 

This Thanksgiving, let us remember to be grateful daily for what we enjoy and have been given.  A positive attitude that sees the good in each day will allow for a richer, more meaningful life. 

We wish you much joy and happiness!
