What Is Your Most Thankful Moment? – November 21, 2012


Recently, a local newspaper put the question out to their readers asking what was their one most thankful moment.  Here was my response:

“Unless something traumatic turns into a miracle I do not think it is about “one most thankful moment” but rather a lifetime of moments. We in the U.S. live in such abundance compared to the rest of the world. In Africa they have to traipse eight hours a day to fetch water for their families (to say nothing of feeding, clothing and sheltering them). When I live in the “now”, grateful for everything in my life (even adversities, which have developed my character, integrity, compassion and forgiveness), I usually am content and happy. But it is more than one moment; it is all momentsA lifetime lived in gratitude beats out any one moment.”

Drape those grateful moments around your heart like a sparkling necklace   Wrap yourself in memories of the past and present with hopes for the future not just on Thanksgiving but every day of the year.

Happy Thanksgiving today and every day.
