Today is a day to pause in our tracks and take stock of our lives. While we might be busy cooking for tonight’s Thanksgiving dinner, try to find a quiet corner for a few minutes alone.
Ask yourself what you are thankful for, and I mean truly, deeply thankful for.
Many of us take other people for granted. Please do not. They might not always be there for you. We might think that our finances are in order and then we are layed off from work. We think we are grateful for our up-to-date home in the right neighborhood, but that is all just on the surface. Of course we can be thankful for all of the above, but please think again.
What happens if you loose your loved one, if you loose your job, if you or someone you love become seriously ill. What would you be thankful for then?
My answer to that question is: who is there for you in hard times, who are you there for when other people struggle? If you are surrounded by generous, wholehearted people that you would do anything for and you know it is a two-way street, that is all that matters.
So I am thankful for my LIFE, for I am lucky enough to have a LIFE filled with LOVE.
I have said it before, but today I choose to say it again. Love one another while you have the chance.
That is the only way to give thanks.
I thank You from the deepest corners of my heart that you are here. You make my life. For that I am eternity grateful.
