These last few months have felt like 5 billion months. So much has happened and life has had its fair share of challenges, but God has remained faithful through it all. With all the craziness going on in this world and each of our lives, I am appreciating thanksgiving this year more than I ever have. Especially within the United States, a very individualistic society separated by so much turmoil, I appreciate that one day of the year everyone in this country is pushed into the art of practicing thankfulness. For one day, some if not all, are focused on family and community. People everywhere are giving back, receiving joyfully and sitting at the table together. With the busyness of life this is so important and I wish I could say this was something we practiced in our society everyday and then some.
There is not a whole lot of days left in this year, and as I look back, there is so much to be thankful for. Yes, there were the hurts, the hurdles and the challenges, but oh how many blessings there were. So in honor of the day, here is just a few things I am thankful for today and really not just today, every single day.
Today I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! In a society so focused on self it is a good reminder to acknowledge the "we" and "community". Life is better together and that is something worth remembering every day. Be thankful and show gratitude to the ones who have meant so much to you either in a good way or bad way, because both make like equally as enriching.
