Lots of food then all sorts of shopping. Is this really what the season is about? I would like to believe that the focus is just what the name suggests Thanksgiving more than consumption. Of course, buying new things can be exciting and the sales provide an opportunity to purchase some needed things at reasonable prices. I take advantage of these opportunities and have no judgment about this. Still, it is a nice time of year to contemplate all that one has in life. Here is my challenge. Take a page from your journal or loose sheet then jot down everything you are grateful to have today. It can be the simple pleasures, people, opportunities, belongings, experiences, all sorts of things. Keep writing down things until the whole page is filled. Try it with me this weekend and see all that you already have in your life.
