Let's Go Give Thanks!

Canadian Thanksgiving Day is around the corner and this is the perfect time to take some quiet time and be thankful for all the blessings in our life. When we are busy with all the routines of the day, dealing with problems and stress, we forget that we are still luckier than most.

On a global perspective, let us be thankful if our country is not in the midst of a war or environmental disaster. Go one step further than just praying for victims, do something to help them by donating or volunteering for a worthy cause.

On a national level, be thankful if you live in a country where there is freedom to exercise your rights, where education is available to many and work is possible to find. No country is perfect and there are still many things that need to be improved. Do your part and actively support those who work for the good of the people.

On the homefront, surely there are many more things we can be thankful for. The health of each family member, the food that we eat, the clothes we wear, the friends we have and specially the love that we share with each other. Children can squabble among themselves and realtives can have their little spats but it is important to remember the ties that bind us to one another.

Finally, on a personal level, I know I still have many blessings to be thankful for despite the many challenges the year has brought. I give thanks for my family and the love and understanding they give to me, I give thanks for the time I have to discover myself, I give thanks for the new friends I made and the chance to re-connect with old friends. The chance to laugh and cry and feel and pray.

To You, I give thanks!

This morning I found myself feeling grumpy and made myself stop and take notice of all the things I should feel thankful for. Suddenly my grumpiness just seemed silly.

(I found your blog through infobarrel. Very nice and best of luck in your writing. It's a worthwhile endeavor if it's what you love.)
