Thanksgiving is approaching. We all have things to be grateful for. Now is a good time to sit down and prepare a list of what we are each thankful for. It is amazing how long that list can become. Large things and tiny things, people in our lives, basic human needs like food and water, and the heat that keeps us warm through the coming winter months. The smile of a friend we bump into at the supermarket has a wonderful way of perking us up. When we are having a tough day, we can pull out our list and remind ourselves of how blessed we are.
Some of us may have a very short list. No matter how reduced our circumstances may be, we still have something to be grateful about. Maybe it is the changing seasons, a visit from a physical therapist, enjoying a congregate meal, a call to or from an old friend, or the sunny day we wake up to. Update our lists and it will keep our focus on positive thoughts. Do something or say something nice to someone. You will be amazed how it not only makes them feel better but will put a smile on your face as well.
