A Day Of Thanks

My thoughts for this Thanksgivng Day...

I have a lot to be thankful for. I live a blessed life. I have an abundance of so much and life, for me is easy. There are so many in this world where getting where getting through each day is a struggle to survive. I have clean water that runs from the tap. I don't have to walk miles to collect it. I don't have to worry about the cleanliness if bugs are lurking in it which might make me ill. I have food in my coffers. I don't worry where my next meal is coming from. I am not scrounging for food or have to line up to get what I am given. I can choose what I want. I have a closet full of clothes. There are many in there that have hung unworn for years. I have more right now then what some will have in a lifetime. I have a home. A roof, heat and most of all security. I don't worry about invasions, tribal wars or even bloodshed in my neighborhood. I have the freedom to say what I want without persecution. I have a voice. So many are silent.

This Thanksgiving, let's give thanks and mean it. There are so many in this world with so much less. So much less than what we have that it's hard to even imagine life in their shoes. I the grand scheme of things we live better than 90% of our fellow inhabitants on this planet, but we are all in this together. So when we get together with all our crazy and weird relatives and friends to stuff our faces, let's complain a little less. Let's take time to remember just how lucky we truly are.

Be well. Be gracious. Be thankful and be giving.

The Girl Effect

If you haven't seen this, please watch it. And if you've watched it before, watch it again. It gives me goosebumps every. single. time. It's sad and hopeful at the same time. It makes me appreciate what I've been given and what I can offer my daughter.
