Today is Thanksgiving. A day off for most, an opportunity for many to be close to friends, family, and loved ones, and a day where eating heartily and drinking merrily are strongly encouraged. And as it would imply, a day of giving thanks and celebrating the blessings of life. I don't know if it's just me, but browsing through Facebook and Twitter this morning, I see more posts, status updates, and check-ins relating to the things that people are grateful for than I've ever seen. It makes me smile, reading about the things that make people happy, and what makes them close their eyes and hold their heart in the spirit of gratitude. And it also makes me smile seeing how many people are viewing today as much more than a chance to sleep in and amass justifications for their New Year's resolutions.
And it also made me think: What am I grateful for?
