Thanksgiving Thoughts

Tomorrow, here in the U.S., we celebrate a holiday called Thanksgiving Day. It's a festive one, with turkey dinner, parades, and football games.

Unlike some other holidays, say Christmas or Mother's Day, there is no "to do" that you are supposed to fulfill, other than to eat some turkey at dinner time. That's actually too bad. Because I think Thanksgiving Day is a wonderful opportunity to do something very simple yet very powerful:

~ to give thanks

Sound good to you? If you want a couple of "to do" items, here are two that occur to me:

1. What are you thankful for? What gifts have you been given in your life? When is the last time you have said a prayer of thanks?

2. Who are you thankful for? Who has been a gift to you in your life? When is the last time you thanked them?

Doing these simple things could help change the world.

Added Note: I'd like to say a big "Thank You!" to Phil Gerbyshak for listing this blog in his Make It Great 125. Much appreciated, Phil!
