Don’t take a break or go away from the idea of being thankful every day instead of just thinking about what you are thankful for on Thanksgiving. I am thankful every day of my life that I have a smart, beautiful wife who is my best friend in this world and has been at my side for over just over 16 years. I am thankful every day that I have two beautiful, intelligent sons who I hope will grow up to love life, learning and be respectful of all other human beings on the planet no matter what. I am thankful that in harsh economic times I still am employed and have never known what it is like to live on the streets or truly be in poverty or have endured true suffering as some have.
I empathize and am thankful for each of these, but I am thankful for so much more. I am thankful for each person who gets up in the morning and goes to work even though they are sick and don’t feel well. I am thankful for all the people who dream of a better world and do what they can in their own ways to help change the world for the better.
I am thankful for all those who stand up to tyranny and try to oppose it, I am thankful for all those who forgive and give second chances. I am thankful for those who love animals and show compassion for every creature on the planet.
Even though the world is still in chaos, tyrants, corporate monstrosities and terrorism still exists, there are things to be thankful for. Be thankful for everything that you have, even the things you can complain about because you have a life and as long as you have a life you can work and strive to do something about the things you want changed.
