Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. Not just because of the amazing food I will have, but because I am able to sit and reflect on just how good God has been to my family and me. I reflect on His goodness daily, but being around family makes me realize just how blessed we are.
Thanksgiving is an opportunity to catch up with familiar faces we haven't seen in a while, and just bask in the love we have for each other! Tomorrow, as we enjoy the company of family and friends, it's important to understand that there are some people who will be spending this day alone, spending this day mourning the loss of loved ones, and spending this day on a job that they probably hate! Even worse, there are some people who will seek shelter because they are without a home to live in and without food to eat. That could very well be us, but it's not. We all have much to be thankful for.
Life isn't perfect, and I am sure there are a lot of things we would all change if we could, but even in our shortcomings, imperfections, and mishaps there is still MUCH to be thankful for!! I hope every person reading this post understands just how Blessed you are....we aren't where we want to be, but thank God we aren't where we use to be!! Be Thankful!
