Being Thankful...not just on Thanksgiving

Americans have plenty for which to be thankful. We enjoy an incredibly high standard of living and good fortune as a nation. Our Thanksgiving holiday of course, has deep traditions from the Pilgrims, but it is relevant even today. Taking a day to be thankful, share gratitude with friends and family and pause to reflect is a good habit. Taking 365 days to be thankful is even better. 

I'm thankful for all the blessings of my life. For friends, family, a career, living in a great community, having good health, and much more. I could wax poetic about this topic, but suffice to say I am thankful every day of my life. Our time on this planet is short. Give thanks today for sure, and every moment we can.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Your words most definitely are the truth, Rick. We all, each and everyone of us, have much for which to give thanks every single day of our lives -if for nothing else but the mere fact we are still here, still breathing. Even on the days when things may look bleak and gray, look around and see how much each of us has and somewhere you will see someone else with much less and often, they are more thankful than those of us who have an over-abundance of things. And yes, it's something we should give thanks for every single day of our lives.
