Today we sit down with our families and give thanks for them and everything in our lives. However, why do we just give thanks or be thankful only on this day. Should we not be thankful everyday of the year? On this day, people tend to eat and then look at the ads to shop. We should be spending time with our love ones and being thankful for the time that we are given. We should cherish each moment that we have because we do not know how long we will have them around.
Everyone is born with a time-frame that God has established for us. This time-frame will vary from one person to the next. Unfortunately we do no know the time line that God established for us, but we can enjoy every moment that we spend with our loved ones.
When you are sitting at the table and giving thanks or saying what you are thankful for, dig deep within yourself and look around you. Every one is thankful for the food, for the blessings in their life, and for their family, but remember to reflect, love, hope, inspire, and be blessed. These little pieces all come together in one day, but really it should be every day. Every day we should REFLECT on ourselves and our family. LOVE everything not just some things. Have HOPE for ourselves, our loved ones, and even strangers. Be INSPIRE to do something good, or go out of your way to do good for others. Be BLESSED with what you have – God, family, and friends.
Our lives are limited. Do not wait until tomorrow that can be done today.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
