A Season of Thankfulness

Sometimes, it can feel like our world is crashing down.  A bad day, a bad week -- maybe even a bad month.  

Personally, our days may be difficult – work is stressful, family obligations seem overwhelming, and we’re forever searching for more time in the day.

Nationwide, we fear school shootings, we listen to politicians who are undoubtedly swayed by special interest groups vs. the overall good for mankind, and our media outlets seem to focus more on the latest design of the Starbucks cup than they do about the growing number of hungry & homeless people right here in the USA.

Globally, there isn't a day that passes in which the evening news doesn't make us cringe.  From the recent attacks in Paris & Lebanon, to the endless fighting in the Middle East – I think it’s safe to say some of us are living in fear.

We wonder when the bad day, bad week, or bad month will end?

But, even amidst our bad days & the crises of the world, we still have SO much to be thankful for.  I’ll bet 98% of the individuals reading this post have a roof over their head, a refrigerator full of food, and family & friends who love them unconditionally.  I’ll bet 98% of the individual’s reading this post have the freedom of religion, speech & the freedom to be whatever they aspire to be.  We have to remember that even when it feels like our world is crashing down, there are always beautiful, kindhearted souls who are willing to help.

Look for the helpers.  Be the helper.  And be thankful for all things.

This season, let’s remember to count our blessings.  Even among the brokenness, let’s find beauty.  Let’s remember that we still have so much to be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving, friends!
