Thanksgiving is about gratitude (you’re welcome—call me Captain Obvious).
Many people go around the table before dinner, saying what they’re thankful for. Others write thank-you notes to the people who’ve given them things. Some serve Thanksgiving dinner to those in need. All over the country, thankfulness is exuding from families who’ve gathered together to eat and relax.
Gratitude is a reminder to be humble, because we don’t deserve what we’ve been given. But gratitude isn’t just about humility and thankfulness, it’s about Who we’re thanking. Every immaterial and material thing we have is a gift from God.
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
I’m thankful to God for . . .
Curtis (he’s very wonderful)
Both of my families
Nieces and nephews—the brand new ones, and the older ones
Pie and whole milk
And lots and lots and lots of other things.
