Live with Gratitude

Live today with thanksgiving.  Not because it is a holiday, but rather as an extension of every day life.  I am no more thankful for my blessings today than I am any other day.  Everything I hold dear can be gonein the blink of an eye. I dare not hold back my gratitude for a single day.  If I do I may miss the simple act of treasuring those gifts.  Giving thanks everyday is a reminder to hold close to the true blessings and letting the rest go.  Today many will gather round the table and give thanks.  May we remember to take that spirit and carry it through every day of our lives.
