No matter where I am at on Thanksgiving I will sit down and give thanks for what I have. While most families will be gathered together, I will be separated from my youngest son. My thoughts will be of him next Thursday. I will count my blessings as I sit with my parents and the rest of my family. My father will more than likely ask each of us to say what we are thankful for. I will say I am blessed to be alive. The list can go on and on. I am blessed to have loving and caring parents who brought me to the United States in 1969 for a better life. Right now I would have to say that my life is not what I dreamed it would be. Am I a failure? No….I am blessed to be alive. God has a purpose for me. I have a job to do. Slowly I am becoming aware of my life’s purpose. Each day opens like a page in a book. I never know what to expect. This year has been a difficult one for me. I expect next year to be better. I need to say grace and blessings each day that I come to the dinner table. Each day is a blessing to me. I need to remind myself that I am truly blessed.
Lord thank you for blessing me with the life that I have today. Let me be a blessing to others who should come my way. Help me to give of myself without expecting anything in return. As I gather each day at your table of plenty, help me to be thankful for what I am about to receive. Help me to share the abundance that I may receive. It is only through giving that I may receive your greatest blessings. Amen
