I think we sometimes forget the meaning of this day. I think a lot of us think about Black Friday and the opportunity to shop for a good bargain for our friends. What is Thanksgiving about? Well, I thought I would do some reflecting today, so I went to Wikipedia — hahaha, I know — reputable source. I’m not really religious, but I’m somewhat spiritual and I am a person of good standing morals and ethics. This holiday helps me build upon my existing character by reflecting on my life and where I am today and the things I should be grateful for. So, I try to remember these things on Thanksgiving each year.
A good friend of mine challenged me with an exercise. She texted me this morning and asked me to tell her 3 things I was grateful for. My response:
- My health
- A roof over my head
- Good people in my life who care about me.
What about you? What are 3 things you are grateful for? Think about it. If you care to share, I would love to hear your response or just take a moment and jot them down for yourself!
I hope you and your family have a happy Thanksgiving!
