What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?

Thanksgiving is a day shared with family and friends, it’s a day of thankfulness for what you  have. It’s a time for prayer, and it’s a time to give back to those who are less fortunate. When sitting at your dinner table this evening laughing and talking among family and friends open your heart to God, thank him for your family and friends even if they do act dysfunctional at times. Thanksgiving and Christmas is the best time of the year for me. I can look back over my life throughout this year, to see what  improvements I’ve made to make me a better person while going into a new year. I love to look at what I’ve done to better my life and if there is something I can do to help others throughout the year to better their life. It’s good to think about yourself and wanting to put you and your family first, but also don’t forget about all the others who is less fortunate than you. For some Thanksgiving only comes once a year, for me thanksgiving is everyday. From my family to yours Happy Thanksgiving!
