I know we’ll all soon be swept up in the twinkling lights of December. And the annual making our lists and checking them twice routine will commence. But before that sets in and you rush off to a Black Friday sale, please take time to really be thankful. Count your blessings. Make that the list you check twice.
It’s so easy to bypass Thanksgiving on our way to more merry and bright holidays, but it’s a great time to pause and reflect. Whatever you’re doing, I hope you are spending today with people who make you more grateful. Whether your Thanksgiving is with family, friends, or even strangers, we all have something to be grateful for. Let’s all do a better job reminding each other of that, instead of worrying about our wants or stressing about our stuff. Let’s be good stewards of what we have, both possessions and relationships.
Give thanks today.
Give thanks tomorrow.
Give thanks every day—the turkey won’t mind.
