Thankful posts are so cliche. I know I’m being a little negative, but it’s sad that we take one day out of 365 to be thankful. And usually that day, surrounded by family and friends is spent watching football (not there’s anything wrong with that, per se) and waiting for midnight to roll around so you can line up to maul each other at Best Buy for the $100 TV.
Don’t get me wrong, setting aside even one day or even a month to be thankful is an awesome practice. But setting aside ONLY one day is sad. In three weeks, when someone cuts you off and steals the parking spot that you were clearly waiting for, are you going to remember to be thankful? Thankful that you have a car. Thankful that you can go to the mall and afford to buy gifts. Thankful that you can drive? I’m going to assume not. Because in all honesty, I don’t either. I’m too busy yelling and cursing at the person in my annoyance.
I don’t mean to get on my soapbox and point fingers, because this is more a reminder to me that I need to be thankful more than one day a year, more than one month a year. More often than not.
Have a thankful day. Even though it’s not “officially” Thanksgiving.
