I don't know if you are part of the culture that celebrates thefourth Thursday of November as a time of feasting and enjoying family,a special day dedicated to gratitude. Maybe in your culture there issome other day set aside for this purpose, other traditions and ways of celebrating.I don't know your circumstances. Maybe you are living in abundance,or maybe you don't even have enough to meet basic needs. Maybe youare enjoying good health, or maybe you are in severe pain or living out your very last days on this earth. Maybe you have a wonderful, lovingfamily and many close friends.
