Folks need to be fed every day. Why wait until a designated holiday to donate money or volunteer to feed and/or clothe them? Having a loving family and friends is a joy. Family (some--let's keep it real!) and friends should be gathered, and celebrated with, as often as possible. Why wait for a special occasion? We bring out the fine china and wear our nice attire for guests. We spend all that money but keep our fine things in the china and clothes closets for special appearances a few times a year. Any day is worthy of our fine wares. We make a concerted effort to share with others something for which we're grateful. We can share something for which we're grateful  every day, even if it's that we woke up this morning. After all, some did not have the privilege. These are some of the things we do on Thanksgiving. But I want to get better at incorporating these activities into my life on a regular basis. I want to have a heart of thanksgiving--every day. Acknowledging my blessings, giving thanks, routinely utilizing what I've worked hard for, and sharing with others are things I can and should do in thought, word, and/or deed on any day.
