Thanksgiving No. 1

I am grateful for what I am and have. (Henry David Thoreau, 19th century essayist)

Lawrence Welk, the late orchestra director said, “Over and over I marvel at the blessings of my life: Each year has grown better than the last.” Life is not always easy; it has its really difficult days, but if we can adopt Thoreau’s attitude of gratitude, we’ll no doubt discover that thanksgiving cannot be limited to one day every November.

Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you. (1 Thessalonians 5:18)
