Give Thanks this Thanksgiving

Give Thanks this Thanksgiving

It's that time of year again!!  Time to gear up for the holidays!  Are you 
ready?  Thanksgiving will be here before you know it.  Have you planned your 
meal?  Invited guests?  Created the grocery list?  There's so much to do to 
prepare for all the excitement ahead!  During the upcoming festivities with 
friends and family, don't forget to take a moment to be thankful for all that 
you have.

While this is a frenzied time of year, aren't you thankful to have the means to 
enjoy it?  You have your health, your home, your friends, and most importantly, 
your family.  Thanksgiving provides us the opportunity to reflect upon that for 
which we are thankful.  Here are some things you may be thankful for this year:

Health- Having good health must never be taken for granted.  With all the 
illness in the world, be thankful that you wake up each morning with the chance 
to make today better than yesterday.

Home- No matter what your living situation, appreciate that you have a place to 
call home this holiday season.

Friends- True friends are difficult to find.  If you find one, cherish them and 
nurture that relationship so it may continue to grow.

Faith- We are so fortunate to live in a country where we can follow our beliefs.  
We can worship as we please without fear of retaliation.  We can speak our 
minds.  We can follow our hearts.

Food- Turkey, dressing, yams....what's on your Thanksgiving dinner list?  
Whatever it may be, be thankful and enjoy every bite!!!

Family- This is probably what you are most thankful for.  Love your family.  
Eat, drink, watch football and that notorious Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. 
Cherish those special memories you make with loved ones this Thanksgiving.

These are just a few of the things we have to be thankful for in this great 
country in which we live.  Be grateful for all that you and your loved ones 
have. The holiday season is such an exciting time of year!  Take time out to 
enjoy it and give thanks for those with whom you have to celebrate it.

A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all other 
virtues. - Cicero
