Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of year where we all take time to think about all we are thankful for. We look back to what we have all been given throughout the years, and look forward to what we may get in the future.
It’s a wonderful time when families get together and share a meal, looking back on what they have.
My family always gets together and we take turns naming things we are thankful for. There are the usuals like a warm home, good food and great friends. But then we have to really start thinking. What do we have that others may not be fortunate enough to have? That is when we start to think of others, people who don’t have the warm house that we have for the coming winter, people who don’t get to eat the same good foods that we do.
We have to make sure that this thanksgiving we aren’t just thankful for what we have but we realize that there are others out there, all around us, that need our help. But this does not have to only be a Thanksgiving thing. Thinking of others should be a focus year round.
