As Thanksgiving approaches most of us think about the meal or football or the parades. Fewer and fewer people actually take the time to sit back and reflect on what they have to be Thankful for.
I ask that each of you spend just 5 or 10 minutes and make a short list of your blessings. Look toward the good Truths in your life, you know those things that give you Joy, Hope and Confidence. Look away from those few things that bring you sadness or depression or inspire fear. Share the good Truths with the friends and loved ones around your table and ask them to share theirs with you.
John F. Kennedy once said “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”
Make this Thanksgiving a day of joyous reflection and then live by it.
