I do not think one day of giving thanks is right. We should give thanks every day.  That is what I try to do.  Even on the worst of days, there is always something for which to say thank you.  Sometimes it might be for a small thing that seems insignificant--a clear night sky, a smile in passing, a compliment, bird song, colors of fall, a comforting hug, caring friends, the sound of laughter.  In each experience there is a touch of God.  So we should not only say thank you to loved ones, friends, and family, but we should thank God for the blessings of each in our lives. 
I am so very thankful for each blessing bestowed in my life.  Without my friends I could not endure difficulties.  Without smiles I would lose hope.  Without hugs I would feel forgotten.  Without the colors of fall I would forget to notice the world created for us.  
So even though my days might include difficulties, they also include blessings. Without such blessings I would not live through the difficulties.
Thank you friends.
Thank you family and loved ones.
Thank you Kala, my caring cat.
Thank you God.
