Today, in the United States, we celebrate what we call Thanksgiving. Depending on what country you’re from, you may not have this holiday. Thanksgiving is a chance to not just eat lots of food, but to pause and count our blessings: faith, friends, relatives, jobs, food (of course), clothing and shelter, spouses, co-workers, (your blessings here). One of the things I can add to my ‘grateful list’ this year is that Thanksgiving is the first paid holiday I’ve had in 7 ½ years.
We all have a lot more to be thankful for than we realize. We take much for granted. If we sat down to make a list of what we’re grateful for, it might surprise us. So whether you celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday in your country or not, I urge you to pause and remember the things you are thankful for. It will be time well spent. Have a safe and blessed Thanksgiving!
