Here in the United States, we celebrate a special day called Thanksgiving Day. However, every day should be a day of thanksgiving, no matter where you live.
If you have food on your table, you should be thankful.
If you have clothes on your back, you should be thankful.
If you have a place to shelter from the elements, you should be thankful.
If you have the ability to read, you should be thankful.
We could go on for a long time, but there are many who do not enjoy these privileges we often take for granted. I lived in Liberia, West Africa with my family and I know what true poverty looks like. What is humbling is that many of the people I met while working there were still thankful for what they had.
They still had life, even if they had nothing else.
