Giving thanks can be funny sometimes. It is easy to see the blessings of others, and use them to measure our own. When someone has something we would like – material, emotional, or otherwise – we see our own lack or our own unfulfilled desire. Focusing on this causes us to miss the blessings right in front of us, and there are many. The trick is being able to give thanks for our blessings and for the blessings given to others that we don’t have. Our desire gives us a little more insight into how meaningful they are. I will be off for the rest of the week to enjoy the blessing of my family and the Thanksgiving holiday. May you be able to see the blessings in yours. Happy Thanksgiving!
