It’s not easy being thankful. It’s much easier taking for granted those things that make my life richer, fuller, more meaningful. Maybe taking a moment out of each day to let someone know how thankful I am that they are a part of my life is hard because it involves a moment of vulnerability. To acknowledge that another person is responsible for making my days better is to admit that I am lacking something. It means that going through this life alone isn’t enough.
Fact is, I wasn’t meant to go through life alone. None of us are. We need each other.
I need my wife, my son, my daughter and that circle of people I call friends.
Who do you need? Do they know it?
