Gracias a la vida... que me ha dado tanto
I learned about Thanksgiving just a couple of years ago. It is not a Mexican tradition, but is a tradition that I've happily adopted. I get together with my neighbors and we bring food and laugh and talk and give thanks. I think it is very important being thankful for all the blessings we have received.
I must confess that I don't pray when I'm going to bed, instead I like to give thanks for 5 blessings each day. Just 5. I now there are more than that but narrowing to just 5 helps me prioritize what it's more important in my life and also helps a lot to remind me that no matter how bad things get some days, there's always more than 5 things to be thankful for.
Even in the worst days I give thanks because I have a bed to rest and a warm house. I have food in my table and a fabulous husband and a beautiful, healthy daughter. I'm even thankful for being able to open the faucet and get water... and I'm lucky enough to decide if I want it warm or cold. There are so many who doesn't have those blessings.
Today, I'd like to give thanks to you.
