Here in the States, we’re celebrating Thanksgiving this week. This holiday has become my favorite holiday during the last few years.
My favorite family holiday is still Christmas and I expect that Christmas will only be more precious as my family grows in number. For me, Thanksgiving is focused on gratitude and contentment.
Our ancestors chose to set aside a day to express thanks for their lives, for the harvest they had, for the friendships they formed, for the joy they felt living in America.
Each year I choose to spend Thanksgiving with different people who are special to me. I have spent it with family, with friends, with strangers who became friends. Last year was wonderful because I visited my mom’s mom in Tennessee.
Although I may not spend Thanksgiving with the same people year after year, one feeling remains constant. I feel overwhelming gratitude and contentment on Thanksgiving. I count my blessings and celebrate my abundance.
This week, I suggest you count your blessings. Your blessings give you wealth, joy, happiness, love, abundance, and prosperity.
After you count your blessings, BE a blessing for someone else.
