Giving Thanks

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it’s time for our annual pause to consider all that we are thankful for.

While it’s easy to get caught up in what seems to be our national pastime of grouching and complaining about the government, idiot drivers and well, idiots in general, usually defined as anyone who doesn’t agree with our politics, we do have a national holiday devoted to giving thanks.

Just for a few days, let the world be. Complaining hasn’t fixed it yet, has it? Let’s stop complaining about the Christmas displays that popped up in September and the stores that are open on Thanksgiving Day. Don’t let the slow driver in front of us or the one making a left turn from the wrong lane make us crazy.

Look around at all we have to be thankful for. As a general rule, those with less tend to be more thankful, while those with more tend to take it for granted. Which are we?

Have a warm, safe place to sleep at night? Be thankful.

Have your health? Be thankful.

Have a few people who care about you? Be thankful.

Have a job? Be thankful.

Have the ability to read and speak? Be thankful.

Live in the snow zone but have the opportunity to come south to enjoy the sun? Be thankful.

You get the drift. We all no matter our circumstances are surrounded by gifts for which we can and should be grateful.

You know the grouchy guys in the balcony from the Muppets, Statler and Waldorf?
