Be Thankful!

November is all about giving thanks, even though this is something we should practice daily instead of only one day out of the year.

There is literally SO much to be thankful for. I can't even begin to explain. It is so easy to take the little things in life for granted during our day-to-day hustle and bustle like waking up every morning, being able to breathe, the activity of our limbs, food, clothing, shelter, soap, toothpaste, running water and more. These things are a part of our normal daily routines, so we tend not to give much thought to them even though they are major things to be thankful for.

We need to stop and take a minute to recognize every blessing in our lives. It will help us see things from a different perspective. I challenge you to have an attitude of gratitude despite what is going on especially when moments in our daily lives may get hard, and we find ourselves complaining about things that could be considered "first world problems." No matter how bad things get, just remember that things could always be worse, so be grateful in the good and bad.

"give thanks in all circumstances" - 1 Thessalonians 5:18

There is more to Thanksgiving than the story of pilgrims and Native-Americans at Plymouth Rock feasting on turkey. Thanksgiving should be a lifestyle. So, after you indulge in turkey, ham, dressing, mac and cheese, yams, rolls, pies, cakes, and everything else this year, remember to keep an attitude of gratitude.

Take a minute every day and ask yourself "what am I thankful for today?"

With that said, I want to say THANK YOU to everyone reading this right now! I really appreciate all of the love and support. Have a blessed and fabulous Thanksgiving holiday!
