Being thankful, as I see it, is a gift we give to ourselves, to others and to God. It’s a gift to us because it helps us to see our blessings and to realize how much we have, instead of what we are lacking. As I tell my children, if they are constantly looking at what other kids have, they will never be satisfied because there always will be someone who has something that is bigger or better. “Be grateful for what you have” is my mantra.
