Giving Thanks is Giving

The sincerest form of gratitude, is to make full use of those things with which we have been blessed.

How can we be thankful that there is food on our table, when others are starving? Isn't that smug and selfish? How can we be thankful for a good job, when others are desperately seeking work? We can be fully and sincerely thankful, by making the best of the opportunities that the food, and the job, and all our other blessings, give us.

Of all our life's treasures, one of the most precious is the ability to make a difference in the lives of others. The more we are blessed with, the more we're able to make a difference.

True abundance compels us to be the best that we can be. Enthusiastically embrace the wonderful possibilities that come from your life's blessings.

The greatest form of thanks is for the air we breathe; it means we are living, alive.

When we benefit more than others (food clothes job whatever), we need to be a)thankful for what we have, but also b)give back to those who do also need it.

Enthusiastically embrace the wonderful possibilities that come from your life's blessings.
I wish more people did this - it is SO easy, and becomes part of habit when you believe that it makes a difference!
