"Giving Thanks" is More Than a Time of Year
"Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow." – Melody Beattie
It's easy to just stop hearing the word "thanks" at this time of year. Like any word that gets repeated over and over again, it can start to lose its meaning. Add in the (hopefully happy) stresses of family gatherings, meal preparation, travel and the ever-encroaching holiday shopping season, and its understandable when the spirit of Thanksgiving gets lost in the shuffle.
It only takes a moment, though, to reflect on things that you are grateful for and people who make your life special. And, ideally, those moments should be spread across the year, and not jammed into spare moments at the end of it.
