Today is the Thanksgiving holiday in Canada. It’s a holiday that was rooted in the idea of giving thanks at the end of harvest season. Sometimes in life we forget to recognize when we have a harvest. There are so many blessings in our lives that we often fail to recognize. Often times those blessings are in the things that we already have. Because we often live our lives looking at what others have, it’s easy to forget that we have our own blessings too.
Being thankful for the people in our lives is one of the most important part of thankfulness. It is those people who show us love and also appreciate who we are in their lives. Be thankful if you have a job, roof over your head and food to eat. There are so many people in the world who do not have those blessings in their lives. The irony is some of those who don’t have what you have, are often even more thankful for the little bit they have.
Life is about learning to experience and be grateful for all that we have been given no matter how bid or small. Enjoy the harvest that comes in your life in different forms. Remember there is always someone who will look at you and love to have exactly what you have.
