Determined Thankfulness

image

Today I woke up in a nice warm bed, had much more than rice to eat and was surrounded by good people. I may not be rich according to American society but compared with the rest of the world I am loaded!

I am blessed and I live among blessed people. Part of our discussion around the dinner table as we ate our plenteous Thanksgiving meal was the acknowledgement of those much less fortunate and what is being done to help and serve them. Thankfulness for what we have doesn’t include ignorance of the needs and sufferings of others. True gratitude for our bounty should also bring the determination that we will not hoard but share what we’ve been given.

blessings,
