Give thanks

Yesterday was Thanksgiving day. I thought it's only applicable in the US. But it's the entire world that celebrates it. Sales are having it's discounted price, food chains having buy 1 take 1 promo in all their goods and people celebrate it like it's Independence day.

I realized that commemorating thanksgiving yesterday is by way of thanking the patronage of its clients for the business sectors. And as for us individuals, it is a day of thanking the people who in one way or another touched our lives and made it meaningful of who we are right now. It could be our parents, our siblings, our husband/wife or partner, our children, our friends and even our enemies. Yes, our enemies. Because if it weren't  for them, we won't be able to mold ourselves into a better person.

Isn't it nice to hear from someone saying "thank you" to you? It's such a magic word. And it's more than any material thing's worth. It cannot be bought or asked for. It just means that having you around them is more than enough help they could ask for. Helping somebody with their needs give a feeling of high and self-satisfaction. It is incomparable and thus the saying, "it is better to give than to receive".

But thanksgiving is not only a one day event. It should be an everyday mindset that as long as we are alive, we should be grateful. We have a lot of reasons to be thankful for. God, above all else, make things possible and beautiful for us. Everything that we have in this world are all created by Our Almighty God and for that alone we should give thanks with a grateful heart...
