Thanksgiving - A Time to be Thankful!

24 Novembre 2017

In truth, I have a lot to be thankful for - we all do.

"The unthankful heart discovers no mercies; but let the thankful heart sweep through the day and, as the magnet finds the iron, so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings!"

"Families, friends and the opportunity to hope that things can still change for the better". "And thankful that an ordinary person like me has been blessed with extraordinary opportunities and experiences throughout my life".

When we are aware of our blessings, we are kinder, more empathetic, more compassionate, more optimistic, even healthier people, studies have shown. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

No matter how much we are blessed with, it seems there is always something else to be had. It is understandable if these people feel that there is little for which to be thankful. In addition to expressing our thanks, we also have a responsibility to help our fellow citizens.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at farragutpress. If they are no longer with you, take a moment to be thankful for the time you spent with them.

Thanksgiving is a holiday about family, but the act of giving thanks starts individually, today and as often as we can keep in mind to do it. As an American Muslim teenager, Thanksgiving is just a normal day for me. My grandfather passed away at the end of March and it will not be the same without him, but I am thankful I still get to spend time with my grandmother. "God bless us all". I'm thankful to God for two outstanding communities where I work, Farragut - plus the local schools - and where I reside, Madisonville. On thanksgiving I'll be chowing down at my in-laws house.

Andrea KGB Lee - "Well 2017 was a great year for me". Something as easy as making dinner for me is a huge blessing because after a 10- or 12-hour day, the last thing I want to do is cook. Let them know how grateful you are for them.

Our Canadian neighbors to the north were so impressed with the idea, they too celebrate Thanksgiving annually, on the second Monday in October. In fact, the simple act of writing a daily gratitude list can notably improve your outlook on life. We received Gizzy from Tractor Supply this past summer. May He continue to bless us with His strength, courage and wisdom to overcome any obstacles or challenges ahead of us.

"I'm thankful to God to be alive and to have good health and family".
