A time of thanksgiving: Turn gratefulness into renewed commitment to community
Is the spirit of Thanksgiving alive in your household — and in your heart — today?Thanksgiving Day offers an annual reminder to all of us that we should pause, if even for a moment, and give thanks for the things we have.
Each of us should take time to think about, to appreciate, what makes our lives special. For some of us that might be family, friends, love, health or simply having food on the table and a roof over our heads. Especially this year, when many people are doing with less — much less — than they ever have. Times are that tough for some. Pause again, if you will, and think about the many people who don’t have the family and friends and the amenities and necessities of life that most of us, luckily, have come to take for granted — if even on a limited scale. Then, if you can, consider what impact you could have on the lives of others.
