It has been one week. All the left overs are gone, and there’s no more pie. There is no use for that little corner of cranberry sauce and your child’s hand print turkey painting is off the fridge. Family members have traveled back home and you’re back at work counting the days to your next holiday pay. Question is, are you still thankful?It is so easy to get caught up in moments, because that’s what holidays are: moments. In October we’re playful, in November we’re thankful, in December we’re giving, in January we’re optimistic, and in February we’re loving; all only for a moment. Once the moment passes, hohumness creeps right back in.
Thankfulness isn’t reserved for just when the turkey is hot, but it should be expressed everyday. Tomorrow isn’t promised and it may never come, so we should live everyday as a thank you. No matter what your current situation is, there is someone who would gladly trade places with you. It’s amazing how soon we forget that.
So don’t wait until next year! Take the time today, tomorrow, and everyday just to say “Thank You.”
“For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?” Psalms 6:5 KJV
