Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I hope that you’re fortunate enough to enjoy the holiday with people that are important in your life. If you’re viewing from outside the U.S., and it’s not a holiday where you are, my wishes extend to you as well!
As this is a time for us to give thanks for what we have, and this is a blog geared toward personal finance, I would like to bring up the idea of giving thanks for the resources that many of us are lucky to have.
Now, some of us are in better financial position than others, and we all have varying degrees of financial stress. I would like to have more….who wouldn’t! That said, today is a day where as I reflect, I’m very thankful for what I do have. Sure, I view family and health as most important. But in terms of resources, I’m thankful I have what it takes to put food on the table and have shelter. It’s a big deal, considering how many folks in different corners of the world are living. Heck, even some folks among us struggle big time.
So, as I spend time with family, eating and maybe having football on in the background, I give thanks for the abundance. It’s a great thing!
I hope you enjoy the day.
