To keep this post friendly I will ignore all of the many things wrong with Christopher Columbus, Columbus Day, and Thanksgiving for many many reasons. Instead I will focus on the part of today that I do enjoy and that is giving thanks for the blessings in my life.

There is so much to be thankful for that the list could go on and on. Today I challenge you to list 20 things you are thankful for, and really dig deep. I don’t believe we give enough thanks in our daily lives. We do a lot of complaining and noticing the bad things that happen but how often do we remember the good things and go to bed every night thankful for the day you were given and the opportunities it held for you.
I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving, if you celebrate it, and remember to be Thankful For the Negatives!
