Thanksgiving is an American holiday, but perhaps it has a larger place in this world. We reserve one day a year to be grateful for all that we have. Some have a lot of material things and some have a little. Yet universally there are some less tangible things that we can all be thankful for.
We can be thankful for our families who we love and who love us. We can be thankful for the friends that we have made over the years who enrich our lives. We can be thankful for the communities in which we live and share our core values. We can be thankful for our spirituality and our belief in a God or a higher power. In short, we can be thankful for our lives and those we share it with.
Have a happy and joyous Thanksgiving!
