We certainly have plenty to be thankful for. We live in the “best” times our world has ever known, by many measures, and certainly have the benefit of not worrying about how we’re going to survive for another day. It's meaningful to look back and appreciate the circumstances and good fortune that have brought us here, with one another. Our DNA and our life experiences are undeniably integrated into what makes us who we are today.
ThanksGIVING isn't about the past for me. Instead, it's about how we will take the present we've been given and turn that into the future. What are we giving to others? Not just materially, but of our knowledge and abilities? Of our perspective and patience? Of our beliefs and commitment? Of our ideas and energy? Of our precious time? We ALL have something to GIVE; what will it be?
The past gave you a ride to the present. The present provides your ticket to the future. Celebrate ThanksGIVING and……..Enjoy the Journey!
