Many people ask, “Why is Thanksgiving important?” and celebrate the holiday but do not know why Thanksgiving is important.
Thanksgiving is a time for everyone to really think about everything that we take for granted and how much we really have. Appreciating and recognizing how many good things we have in our lives is what giving thanks does and it is how it helps us. Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks to our loved ones who support us every single day and to appreciate how much they help us. Yes, it is a day with great food, football is playing all day, and a big parade but it is sooo much more than that. Not everyone is fortunate enough to celebrate with their families and loved ones. Be thankful and grateful on Thanksgiving for everything that you have.
There is always something to be thankful for.
Thankfulness is the beginning of gratitude, which means gratitude is the completion of thankfulness. Being thankful is great and it’s great to appreciate everything the people do for you but take it one step further and show your gratitude . Gratitude is action, showing that you are thankful. It’s great to be thankful, don’t get me wrong being thankful and appreciating what others do for you is great, but going that extra step and putting it action, showing your gratitude, like by writing a card is awesome.
Feeling thankful and not showing or expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. Doesn’t make any sense right?
Everyone has something to be thankful for.
Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action.
Thanks + Giving = Thanksgiving
