Better yet, who are you thankful for?
Is there someone in your life that you’re thankful is there? A parent, a friend, spouse or partner, sibling, child, teacher, pet?
Someone who brings you joy, love, inspiration, companionship, who gives meaning to your life?
Or, was there once?
As the Thanksgiving holidays approach, perhaps it would be a good time to let them know just how thankful you are for all they mean to you. Even if you think they already know.
If they’re no longer here, just give thanks to God, or the universe, or whoever it is you thank, for blessing you with them.
Among many others, I’m thankful for all of you, who take a minute out of your day to read my occasional babbling, and even to babble back sometimes.
As many reasons as we can all probably come up with to not be thankful, let’s be sure to acknowledge the things – and especially, the people – for which we can give thanks.
And not just on Thanksgiving.
In closing, I leave with you this thought I’m borrowing from a fellow blogger who posted this recently:
“Thankfulness is the beginning of gratitude. Gratitude is the completion of thankfulness. Thankfulness may consist merely of words. Gratitude is shown in acts.” – Henri Frederic Amiel
Happy Turkey Day, everybody.
