When I think about Thanksgiving my immediate thoughts go to turkey, football, and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
And while some thoughts around dinner may give thanks to family, friends, and those closest to us I rarely humble myself to give thanks to many more things that surround me.
I sometimes wonder if we can all be so selfish and forget that today is a day to give thanks not only to those closest to us, but to give thanks to things sometimes that are beyond our control.
Perhaps today is a day to be thankful for what we have. We are often so consumed on the next big thing: the highers paying job, the bigger house, the better vacation, that we forget to be thankful for the simple things we may have.
I challenge you to look around today. In the hustle and bustle of Thanksgiving day take a moment to look around, appreciate what surrounds you, and not only be thankful today, but each and everyday moving forward.
