How the time passes by quickly. We’re getting closer to the holiday that precedes Christmas — Thanksgiving. This is the time for all of us to recall what happened in the past year and summarize the impressions in a hopefully warm home with a holiday turkey and other dishes. This is also the time to be thankful for everything that has happened to us.
All of our fates are different and we are all thankful for different things, but there are those few aspects of our lives that I am convinced we are all grateful for. For a family that supports you in your desires and appetites; for all the friends who put a smile on your face, for the fate that brought you right here where you are. For that special person who not only puts a smile on your face and the beautiful memories in your heart, but teaches you how to love and cherish the love. The person who makes you feel loved, who calms you when it’s hard and who is there for you no matter what.
It is true that some of these things are a little cliché, but when was love not a bit like that?
A week from now, most of us will enjoy a family home full of love and understanding, where we can express what we feel and express our gratitude for all good things and bad. Fate does not choose the path and often tempts us in order to make us
We can also be thankful to the people who have betrayed us, because they taught us how to fight. To all the teachers who graded our papers for less than we expected. They taught us how to try harder. And to all the coaches who give their best every day to make not only good athletes, but hopefully, great people.
Be grateful for all that is happening around us and within us. We should be thankful every day, not just during Thanksgiving. And who knows, if you remember to be grateful at least once in a year, it might just become a habit.
I hope you will all enjoy the holidays with your loved ones, and you will return to your tasks more grateful than you were yesterday. Remember, Thanksgiving is not just to be thankful for the amazing food that your dearest makes, but to be thankful for everything you have and everything you have become.
