I sincerely hope all nations have a celebration that’s comparable to our Thanksgiving Day celebration. If we get too caught up in the day-to-day struggle to keep moving forward, it’s nice to know that we can at least set aside one day to just be thankful for whatever little bit it is we have. Sure there’s historical, political, and for those who choose, even religious ties to this holiday, but it doesn’t have to be that complicated. There’s always something to be thankful for.
Today I’m thankful for:
…My health, that isn’t always the best, but at least I’m here and not currently suffering any pain.
…My family and friends. I’m not always the best at keeping in touch or being aware of what’s happening with others, but I do care and know that I couldn’t make it day-to-day without the ones who love me standing by my side: physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
…My country, with all its faults, it’s still the place that allows me to live and pursue happiness in spite of my race, gender, and religious preference.
