Thankful for...

Thursday, November 25, 2010
It's not difficult to be thankful this Thanksgiving season. In a world where so many are suffering, mentally, physically, and financially, being grateful for what I have is pretty simple. So what exactly am I thankful for? Well, so many things including the obvious, my family and friends, our good health, a roof over our heads, and the means to have it.

But what I am most thankful for is something small, laughter. In a world filled with poverty, hunger, war, and grief, the sound of laughter is music to my ears. When so many have little reason to laugh, the sounds of children giggling, women cackling, and big roars from the men are glorious.

As I sat around the table today, sharing a meal with family, I couldn't help but pay particular attention to the laughter. It occurs when we are happy, content, and grateful for that with which we've been blessed. Isn't that the true meaning of Thanksgiving?

I hope you enjoyed a wonderful day with friends and family.
