“‘Thank you‘ is the best prayer that anyone could say. I say that one a lot. Thank you expresses extreme gratitude, humility, understanding.”
~ Alice Walker
As we begin the week of Thanksgiving in America, it is important to remember, respect and show compassion to all those who do not have the luxury of a warm meal, a place they call home, or the safety net of a regular income stream. It’s a time to remember to be grateful for the blessings that we have. In many instances, what we take for granted are often luxuries to the less fortunate.
It’s a time to reflect and think about how you could make a difference, a dent in this insidious epidemic that is Hunger.
Check out the Humanitarian Efforts page of my blog if you are interested in learning more about how you can help fight hunger in your community. And see what wonderful work is being done by three well-respected hunger relief organizations in the United States, Canada and around the world.
Gratitude (a prerequisite for happiness)
I, for one, bow my head in thanks for the sweetness and light of my family, friends and my beloved “children” (my pets).
Humility (not always palatable for many)
There are those who are, by nature, humble. Then there are others who have learned how to be humble. I fall into this latter category.
I guess we are all a ‘Work in Progress’ …
Thank you for stopping by.
