The Gift of Thanksgiving!

Did you enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner?  The food smells so good. Did you eat too much?

Thanksgiving Dinner - A SPECIAL Time

What an amazing gift Thanksgiving represents?… A time when families and friends are intentional as they come together to fellowship and celebrate their relationships.

Today was very special to me because I asked an intriguing question of myself, “Beyond the turkey dinner and watching football, what am I really thankful for?”

The reason why this question was powerful is because it made me stop and reflect upon all the blessings in my life.

Isn’t it amazing how we can sometimes get caught up in the busy-ness of life and our hectic schedules forgetting to appreciate all the many blessings we have.

Why is this?

Why are most people not truly living each day with an “Attitude of Gratitude” being consciously THANKFUL for all that they have?

I know I’ve been there, just caught up in the busy activities of the day, forgetting to appreciate my blessings.

But today, I am making a NEW declaration… From this day forward, I, Marlon Christopher Smith, am living each day with an “Attitude of Gratitude.”

To continue the spirit of Thanksgiving so it’s not just a once-a-year holiday but rather a way of life, I make the commitment to let at least one person every day know how much I appreciate our relationship.

What do you say?

How does this resonate with you?

Are you willing to live each day where you are grateful and thankful for all the blessings in your life?

Question of Reflection

How will your life change by living with an “Attitude of Gratitude” each day?

Share your feedback.

Appreciate who is in your life and all the blessings you currently have because it truly makes a difference.

Stay Blessed!
