The overwhelming majority of our friends and family are doing well. Love. Houses. Jobs. Many of us have spoiled pets that make us smile and run our lives. With food in the fridge and iPhones in our hands, we’ll spend December pondering Christmas gifts, 401K contributions and where to go to dinner.
And when I think about the people I share my days with, the life I live and all of its accessories, I’m slightly embarrassed there’s a special holiday set aside for the sole purpose of giving thanks. When you stop and consider the world around you, and the fact that you have an opportunity to live your life pretty much however you please, every damn day should feel a little like Thanksgiving.
