Be Thankful

21 Nov

Around this time of year in the United States we celebrate Thanksgiving. When you think of Thanksgiving you think of many things including family, turkey, and lots of food. When you were in grade school you wrote a list of things to be thankful for. Some people look forward to seeing all of their family members others wish that few didn’t show up. Whichever way you prefer it I would like to remind you of a few things to be thankful for such as this country we live in. I know there are a few things that we would like to omit but when you look at other countries around the world you can be thankful for the one you live in.

The unemployment rate for the U.S. currently is 9% that figure is not including the thousands if not millions of unemployed workers who are no longer able to file due to them reaching their maximum filing date. Take a look at what the current salaries are monthly for some of the careers around the world. Again we have a lot to be thankful for because there are countries around the world that are not as fortunate as we are. May you and your families have a Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels!

    I was surprised to see my country in this list and it actually looks in good shape, yet people are always greedy, always wanting more and always wanting what others have. It’s truly a bliss if you can actually be thankful and satisfied with what you have. Thank God for everything, and bless you ❤

      Thanks for your post Mai! I am glad you see it the way I see it. There can be someone making $236 monthly and live lavishly yet here in the States people spend that on groceries for the month! You just definitely have to be thankful for everything! Literally everything! Each and every night that I go to bed and I wake in the morning I thank God for EVERYTHING because there are so many who aren’t as fortunate as I am! Thank you, God bless you too!
