A Special Note -A Special Thanksgiving Day

Each year here in the USA we have a special day unlike any other known anywhere else in the world. It is our unique holiday this giving thanks day. It is not only to give thanks for the abundance in our lives that God has blessed upon us, but also to commemorate the first Thanksgiving day celebrated by the Pilgrims, after overcoming hardships suffered by the first settlers from the old world to the new.

Thanks was given not only for survival but also for an abundant crop as well as new friendships formed with the Indians who helped the newcomers to settle in the new land.

I have something in common with those first settlers, as it was on Thanksgiving Day that my family arrived to this new land and was welcomed to settle in this our new country, the USA. Each year we give thanks for our new opportunity for a free life in this land, each year we remember how warmly we were welcomed, how much open help we received from people who knew nothing about us, but nonetheless gave us love and friendship.

We may grumble from day to day about the markets or conditions that we may find hard, but remember those who have overcome challenges much more difficult and smiled in the end. Also remember that, no matter how lucky you feel or how well you do, someone else helped in making your dreams come true.

So each and every day, and especially on Thanksgiving Day:
Give thanks for what you have, give thanks to those you know and don't forget to thank God.
