Thanksgiving Why Do We Celebrate Thanksgiving? First, I hope you are having a happy Thanksgiving Day. In fact, every day should be Thanksgiving, shouldn't it? Happiness is all about being grateful for what we have; not about going out and searching for what we don't have. The freedom to choose, whether to work or not, whether to shop or not, what to eat, with whom to share the day; all of these freedoms are to be thankful for. Let's start another tradition here at FutureLawyer. Comment on what you are thankful for today. It doesn't have to be all inclusive. I, for example, am thankful for my immediate family, my extended family, and all of the persons with whom I have contact each day. I am most thankful for a loving wife, and beautiful kids, and for my health. Look around. No matter your circumstances, there is something to be thankful for. If you are alone, may you be comforted. If you are sick, may you get better. If you are unemployed, know that you are being prayed for. Be thankful for what you have, and get out there and pay it forward. I am going to do some shopping tomorrow; not only because I enjoy it, but because the money I spend helps to create jobs for others, who use that money to live. This is my prayer for this Thanksgiving Day.
