Thankful Nation

November 30th, 2016

This is the official day that our nation gives thanks for all the blessings we’ve received throughout the year. We have celebrated the good things in our lives like this since the days of George Washington. There must be a reason why this tradition has lasted so long in our country.

Let’s face it, some years we feel more thankful than others. Life has so many ups and downs, and really, there are many things that happen in life that we can’t control. It’s easy to get sucked into putting too much focus on the bad.

Here’s a few things to think about starting today and for the rest of the year:

Live today like it’s your last Thanksgiving. For some of us, it will be. Eat your food like it’s the last time you will have whatever it is you’re eating today. Talk to all the people you see today like it’s the last time you will see them. Everything you do today and throughout this holiday season, live it like it’s your last. The next time you take out the garbage, clean the toilet, mow the grass, do it like it’s the last time. It changes your whole attitude.

Cheer every Ducks game, like it’s your last game.

Why am I telling you this? Because we have a real life example of how this works; if you haven’t heard the story of Craig Cunningham of the Tucson Road Runners CLICK THIS LINK.
