When I was young I had a Jewish friend. I remember that it was odd that he didn’t get to celebrate Christmas. Even when he told how it was better getting presents every day for week I still felt that we missed out on a level of community by having different holidays.

My friend did celebrate Thanksgiving though. I remember being very happy that everyone everywhere could take this opportunity to pause with friends and family and be thankful.

I don’t know your situation or beliefs but I know that if you look inside there is something you have to be thankful for. For example, if you’re reading this you have internet connectivity. Be thankful for that! Really, be thankful in all things. Practice being thankful…it’ll make everything better.

Anyway, I’m thankful for you…
