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.
