Thoughts about Thanksgiving
As the Thanksgiving Holiday approaches, I began to review the events of the past year. Even though this
year has been so different to say the least, with some good days and some not so good days, I
thought to myself, I am sure there are things for which I can be thankful. So, I began to make a list.
-Life, the opportunity for another day.
-Family and friends, who have provided laughter, love and support when needed.
-Family pet, which brings happiness and unconditional love to my daughter.
-Home, a place that continues to hold so many wonderful memories.
-Work, where I can use my talents and abilities to help others.
-Nature, where I enjoy the change in seasons, the sunrises and sunsets.
-Vacation memories, a time to reminisce with family and friends.
-Holidays to share with family and friends. (even if it is through facetime or social media this year).
-The people in my community who provided much-needed services during this pandemic.
I am sure there are many more items you could add to this list. Why not think about it and make a
list of your own!
Gratitude is an attitude that can enhance our lives and can help promote a more positive outlook on
life. It gives us a sense of inner peace and joy which becomes part of our very being. Let us strive to keep an
attitude of gratitude not only at Thanksgiving but each day throughout the year.
