Happy (Canadian) Thanksgiving Day everyone!
There is a saying that feeling appreciation and not expressing it is like wrapping a gift and not giving it. As we sit down to our meal today, surrounded by family and friends let’s give thanks for what we have received.
Perhaps it is time that we got back to basics and began to appreciate all that we have. Most of us have roofs over our heads and food on our tables. We have family and that, surely, is a great blessing when others are lonely. Should not we be giving thanks for friendship and what it means in our lives? Each one of us has been given talents and skills and as well as being grateful for them perhaps, at this time of thanksgiving, we should decide to use them.
Our health is, they say, our wealth and anyone who has been ill knows that is true. We all often have aches and pains, but consider others who deal with pain every day, and be thankful.
Thanksgiving Day is for appreciating our own good fortune and sharing it with others.
