BrotherWord - Thanksgiving 2014

Today is a day when many will come together and not share in a feast of delicacies, but also share what they are most THANKFUL for and why.  Being THANKFUL is a sense of mind that hopefully is expressed each day and is not just reserved for one day out the year.

Use today to begin shaping the life you hope to lead.  Start practicing daily by starting and ending the day with THANKFUL thoughts.  Constantly remind yourself that is is not about what you do not have, but more about what you do.  Remember the lessons taught, the loved ones lost, and those that paved the way so you would not have to pay the same cost.  Being THANKFUL is a choice, a choice to focus on the blessings surrounding us and not on the woes that occasionally plaque our lives.  This day, like every day we continue to have breath in our body, is another chance to make an impact and a difference in our lives and others.  Use it wisely.

I am THANKFUL for each and everyone of you who continue to push me to be better, challenge me to be stronger, support me to go farther, and support when I fall short or get weak.  I am THANKFUL for the purpose and responsibility that I do not take lightly and I take much pride in carrying out.  I am THANKFUL that someone’s life will be changed for the better because they too chose to have a grateful heart.  I am THANKFUL that hope are dreams are very much alive despite the tragedies and chaos of the world.  I am THANKFUL that when my voice grows tired or quivers, God still hears my whisper.  I am THANKFUL for newfound friends who understand the hustle and struggle and are willing to travel along side no matter the deterrent or doubts.  Today, I am THANKFUL for it all!

I am THANKFUL for the food before us, the friends beside us, and the love between us. I pray every meal is a feast, each encounter is a treasured memory, and THANKFULNESS is shared throughout.  From @BrotherWord to all, I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
