Tomorrow is the day in America set aside to be thankful for family and friends, for food and home. But Thanksgiving is not just a time...it's also an action verb. Giving thanks should be as natural as breathing to us but sometimes we take our blessings for granted.
Let's give thanks for our military personnel who leave their homes to serve us. Let's be thankful for missionaries and their families who leave their homes to serve God. Let's be thankful for one another...let's put hate out of our hearts for good and replace it with love for each person, no matter their color, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual preference, financial status, no matter....no matter....no matter.
And let's take it a step further than just giving thanks. Let's show thanks, in little ways as well as big ones. Let's write a thank you on a post-it note and stick it to our coworker's desk, the mirror in the bathroom at work for the person who keeps it clean for us, in the mailbox for our postal workers, in our child's lunchbox for being someone so special, anywhere and everywhere. Let's make love viral.
