Once a year we take a day to give thanks.  Thanks for family, friends, good health, clothes on back, a roof over head and so on and so forth.  These for sure are proper things to be thankful for.

But we must think of the ones that for one reason or another can not be thankful for any or all of the above.  The ones that can only dream, hope and or wish for whatever they are lacking within  their lives.

Instead of taking one day to be thankful take everyday to be thankful for you never know what each day will bring.

Enjoy the time spent with family and friends.  Ask your children what they are thankful for.

I asked my children and they said “nothing”.  I went through the different things they have that others do not and it made Kalie sad.  Sad for others that don’t have what we have.  Warren started joining in on things to be thankful for, once he understood what I meant.

We by no means live an extravagant life.  We have what we need to live day to day.  To which we are thankful for.

This may not be a long post but I hope it is a meaningful one.  As you wake up every morning remember the light of the day unwraps the darkness of night and presents you with a gift as you open your eyes.
