Sometimes we find ourselves in a time of abundance and we know it and give thanks. Sometimes we find ourselves in a time of scarcity and we know it, but give thanks for what we do have. Sometimes it takes a bit of reflection to discover, despite outward appearances, we really are in a time of abundance before we realise it. That is the spirit of Thanksgiving. No matter what difficulties we face in life, that fact we still have life is reason to give thanks.
To everyone out there reading this: Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
