Thanksgiving is almost here. What are you the most grateful for?
A blogger I follow asked why we show gratitude on Thanksgiving and not the other 364 days of the year.
This made me think. How can we turn Thanksgiving into a year-round celebration?
There are a variety of ways we can make a difference in someone’s life. Anything from donating to a worthwhile charity to knitting scarves for the homeless.
This past week, British Columbia was struck by disaster. We had an ‘atmospheric river’ occurrence, which in essence meant Mother nature turned on the taps and walked out the door. Roads collapsed, homes flooded, cities had to be evacuated, and thousands of animals perished. It will take months, and maybe even years, to recover- if it’s possible at all.
We aren’t the only ones; California faces hellish firestorms, Louisiana flooding, Texas hurricanes- my point is, we need to band together. Help is essential. Without the aid of strangers, many will lose everything.
Climate change is here. It’s a fact. If we want to survive, we need to step up to the plate and help our fellow man.
That’s what Thanksgiving 365 looks like.
I hope you and yours have a safe and thoughtful Thanksgiving. Gratitude is something we earn.
