My Thankful List

by Susan Reichert, Editor-in-Chief

We all at one time or another say we are thankful for something or someone.  Lately I have begun to wonder if we really understand what that word means and if we do in fact mean it.
I realized that I have many opportunities every day to thank someone for helping me and to tell them just how grateful I am they took some of their time and spent it on me.
All the moments in a day when someone gives me comfort or pleasure, I need to make sure to say thank you. I need to remember not to take them for granted.
Perhaps, I should make a list, I can call it my Thankful List, and make a note of each thing and each person I am grateful for and at the end of the week begin a new list. Keeping the lists I could check at the end of every month how many times each was listed during the month. Then spending a few moments reflecting on all the things I do have in my life to be grateful for all the time, showing me just how blessed I am.
So let me say to you all right now, thank you, have a blessed Thanksgiving.
