Giving Thanks

"


This Thanksgiving…

When you dress in your holiday finery, remember there are those who must wear rags.

When you sit in your cozy and comfortable homes, remember there are those who shiver in the cold.

When you sit down at the dining room table, remember there are those who have no table, no chair and no dining room. 

When you are eating your turkey with all the trimmings, remember there are those who hunger and whose plates will be empty.

When you enjoy the company of friends and family, remember there are those who are all alone.

And after the feast is over and it’s time for bed, remember as you slip under the crisp sheets, there are those whose only bed is a pallet on the cold, hard, ground. 

Be thankful for the simple things we all take for granted.  And if you think you have it bad, remember there will always be those who wish they had it that bad.
