It’s the day after Thanksgiving. How are you spending your day?
You might be
• Watching sports
• Eating leftovers
• Cleaning up after having a full house
• Decorating for Christmas
• Wrapping presents
• Sending cards
• Still counting your blessings and being thankful
• Or any number of other things
Which one are you doing today? Have you stopped to remember all the things you were thankful for yesterday?
Have you seen/heard this before…
…if you stop to think about it, for many people… this is true.
We often forget to be thankful for everything we said we were thankful for on Thanksgiving.
There’s another picture/phrase that goes like this…
Let us remember that Thanksgiving need not be only one day a year. The little things you thought hard about to be thankful for yesterday, are still the little things you can be thankful for today, and every day.
When you’re having a rough day, after the typical “ARGH!” stop and remember the things you are thankful for. It’s hard to be mad, sad, or disappointed when we stop to remember all the things we have to be thankful for.
Okay, I’m sure you get the point. Try putting into practice. Thanksgiving afterthoughts are good for your soul.
