Happy Thanksgiving Day
At times when families and friends gather together, like Thanksgiving and Christmas, we have an opportunity to share our beliefs, and joys and sorrows.
These can be difficult times as well because sometimes the people in our lives test us. We don't always agree with each other. We don't always treat each other well.
It is easy to love and appreciate the ones that are a joy to be around; and the ones that inspire, uplift and encourage us to be the best that we can be.
But what we need to realise is that ALL the people in our lives help us learn and grow. They help us discover strengths we didn't know we had. They help us find compassion and forgiveness. They help us become more tolerant and understanding.
They hold up a "mirror" to show us who we are, warts and all!
Without other people to teach, inspire, uplift or irritate us, we would stagnate. We would never find the pearl at the centre of our being.
So my friends...
Any day is a good day to let people know that they matter; that they make a difference.
Please share this post with your friends and family to let them know how important they are.
