To me, everyday is Thanksgiving Day. I don't think a day passes by that I'm not thankful for something. A lot of people take their days for granted. They look at yesterday as a mistake or wishing that day would never have happened. At some point in that twenty-four hour period you had to be grateful for something. Whether it be another breathing day of life, waking up next to the person you love, or for simply having that cup of coffee in the morning.
We often times encounter difficult days... the loss of a loved one, a terrible disease, a hurtful breakup, a car accident, unpaid bills, trouble at work, or you're just having a bad day. One thing to remember, there are people out there who have it far worse than you, and they're thankful for every day they get the chance to live. They pray that they're not hung from a noose for being gay, stoned to death for having an affair, or humiliated in front of millions of people for speaking against their government.
So the next time you feel at your worst, take that tiny glimmer of hope (that one second, minute, or hour), and be thankful that you're you.
Have a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving.
