We can talk about gratitude and give thanks all day long but the truth is, gratitude is morally and intellectually demanding. It takes mental fortitude to see what is awesome in your life instead of what is not awesome. To focus on what you have or are blessed with instead of what you don't have or aren't happy about.
Many of us have been affected by Sandy, some as a mere and or continuing inconvenience and others have had their lives changed forever by this storm. But today is the day set aside, the prescribed opportunity, to tune in, focus on and be thankful for who and what we do have and even share and send some additional prayers to those that may not be so fortunate.
Enjoy today, bask in the glow of the loved ones that surround you.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
