Giving Thanks

In the United States (and several other parts of the world), this coming Thursday is a holiday. It is the fourth Thursday in November and is, thus, Thanksgiving. I was part of a discussion with a granddaughter about a week ago in explaining the roots of the holiday and why we celebrate it. So that she could understand, I pointed out that it is a time set aside to give thanks for the blessings we enjoy.

Truth be told, I offer up my thanks just about every day. I find myself living in a time of great opportunities, of great goodness, and what previous generations would have viewed as miracles. Even amidst the chaos and sorrow that afflicts us, I am able to see good, and I give thanks.

I hope that you, similarly, are able to sift the good from the bad and, in your own way, will pause on the appointed day (or any day) and give thanks for the blessings you enjoy.
