Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. Like other important days, it is not a once-a-year occurrence. I am happier when I am thankful. The irritations of life matter less when I focus on the blessings of my life. Appreciation snuffs the flames of the wanna-get-mores. Acknowledging all that I have shows me more ways I can help others. Knowing that there are people thankful for me is humbling.
