Giving the Gift of Another Day

Wake up in the morning and give thanks. You’ve been given the gift of another day.

Give thanks for the roof over your head. Many sleep without cover.

Give thanks for the food in your belly. Many bellies are empty.

Give thanks for the money in your wallet. Many wallets are bare.

Give thanks for the clothes on your back. Many have no change of clothes.

Give thanks for the electricity that flows. Many do not have outlets.

Give thanks for clean water to drink. Many walk for miles for potable water.

Give thanks for the love that surrounds you. Many are alone and feel unloved.

Give thanks for the heart that beats in your chest. Many hearts stopped beating overnight.

Give thanks for the opportunity to be of service. Many people are in need of your gifts.

Give thanks for all you have in your life. Many live with little.

Give thanks for your ability to give and lend a hand to others. Many will give thanks when you do.

Rest your head on your pillow at night and give thanks. Many were given the gift of another day because of your kindness, generosity and compassion.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving holiday!
