Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday. You get together with your closest friends and family, have a big ass meal, and enjoy each other's company. Everyone will recite that they are thankful for God, family, wife, children, dog, etc. Those are all great things to be thankful for, and we should be thankful for them everyday. It's important to let the people around you know how much you care about them all the time.
For this Thanksgiving, I want to be thankful for something less cliche'. I'm thankful for opportunity. I've been given a lot of great opportunities in my lifetime. I'm thankful that I've been able to acknowledge them and take advantage of what I've been given. A lot of people squander away things in their lives because the are irresponsible and foolish. Other people are just never given certain opportunities. We've all got to make due with what we have and do our best to achieve more.
There are people that have less and there are people who have more. Be thankful for what you have not just today, but every single day. The minute you take something for granted is when you have the greatest opportunity to lose it.
