Thanksgiving (11/22/2016)

At this time of the year, I find myself thinking of all the blessings we have. Sometimes our minds are filled with all of the negatives in this world. Our senses can become overloaded with the constant battering of the media, trying to get our attention by telling us all that is wrong in the world. The workplace can be a place of stress and worry. To pick your head up and look around at what is good can become hard.

We are all fortunate to live in the United States. Most of us have been provided with an education. We have food to eat and clothing to wear. We have a roof over our heads and a bed to sleep on. We have friends and family. We have the opportunity to take a quiet walk along a byway. We can read books or go to the movies of our choice. We tend to take all of this for granted, but there are many people who don’t have these blessings.

At this time of the year, take some time to count your blessings and to think of the people who are less fortunate. It’s a blessing to help them, too!

Happy Thanksgiving!
