Yesterday many Americans celebrated Thanksgiving and hopefully amid all of the food and early black Friday shopping we actually found time to give thanks. It was a fun day, but also a stressful day for me as we assembled the kids and the food and headed out to my sister’s house for the day. The day ended with our three year old melting down and crying most the way home. By the time both kids were in bed I was finding myself feeling less than thankful. Which reminded me that while it’s good to have a day set aside to give thanks, we also need to remember to give thanks every day and in all circumstances; whether things are good or bad, whether we can afford the Christmas gifts we want or not, if our kids are well behaved or difficult, in all things give thanks.
