It is difficult to be thankful. With so much negativity around, and the wants and desires of being human, it is not easy to stop and be thankful for what we have, no matter how little (or much) that might be. I have no reason why I should not be thankful, but all I can think about it how things have gone wrong or how I would like to win the Powerball so I would not have to work. The thought does not pass my mind of how good of a job I really have compared to a lot of people. It does not occur that my family is not a bunch of deranged hellions but is actually great. Tis the season to be thankful, but even knowing that does not guarantee we take heed.
