A few versions of this saying have been around a while. But Thanksgiving is the perfect time to make it top of mind. It’s a reminder that Thanksgiving is an ideal time to truly stop and give thanks for the many blessings, big and small, in our lives.

Now more than ever, as Thanksgiving is being overshadowed by the “noise” of Christmas with early advertisements, sales, decorations and music, it’s important that we don’t lose sight of the opportunity to acknowledge the good in our lives.

But, as the saying implies, we should be thankful not just on Thanksgiving, but every day…for the warmth and comfort of our home, for the food we eat and share with others, for the clothing we wear, the transportation that gets us to and from work, play and errands, for the money we have to spend on items we need…and want. Everyday items we often take for granted.

The list is endless.

But how often do we stop and say “thank you” for these and the other countless blessings we receive throughout our lives? I’ve heard it referred to as the “gratitude attitude,” and it’s a pretty good one to acquire.
