Happy Thanksgiving!

This is Thanksgiving week in the United States and several other countries. It is traditionally a time for family and friends to gather, share food, and make memories. Most will gather on Thursday to celebrate the holiday.

If you stop and think about it, though, you don't really need a holiday in order to develop an attitude of gratitude--to be perpetually thankful for the conveniences, fortunes, and blessings that you enjoy in your life. It should be easy to be thankful for a roof over you head and the food on your table. It takes little additional effort to be thankful for your friends and the opportunities that come your way.

Unfortunately, things often conspire to cloud the clarity with which we should view the things for which we should be grateful. Health may change, fortunes may drop, and friendships may be lost. In my experience, however, these are but temporary setbacks in the happiness that we can choose to find around us.

I am thankful for many things; I dare say I am thankful for most things. I hope that you take the time this week (and all weeks) to reflect on your blessings and express gratitude for the life you are fortunate enough to lead.
