I sincerely hope this week’s sign brings a smile to your face. After all, “laughter is the best medicine,” and all of us can benefit from a good laugh.
We are not the first to draw attention to the fact that turkeys don’t have much to be thankful for at Thanksgiving – unless maybe it’s vegetarians!
There’s a more serious side to this post, though. Perhaps it would be healthy for each one of us to ask ourselves, “Am I thankful?”
I’m sure all of us have met thoughtless, ungrateful, self-centred people, and we’d love for them to change their perspective, and be a little more thoughtful, grateful, considerate, and compassionate toward others, and maybe even toward us! The question is, are we ever like that?
King, musician and song-writer David, in Psalm 103, comes up with a long list of things for which to thank and “praise” God.
See this link for part of his list. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=psalm+103%3A1-8&version=NIV
No matter how hard your life may be – and I realize life can be extremely challenging at times, whether you believe in God or not – you do have things to be thankful for. In fact, if you’re like me, you probably have a lot more than you realize. Why not take a few minutes today and write them down (on paper, or electronically)? I’m sure you’ll feel more grateful when you’re done.
Don’t be a turkey this Thanksgiving. Be thankful. And if there’s someone you’re thankful for, think of a kind, no-strings-attached way to let them know.
