This time of year is good for all of us, as life sometimes can become overwhelming and discouraging. The Thanksgiving holiday helps us reflect and think about what is really important. Sometimes it can be hard to focus on those things through our busy chaotic daily life.
Here is a poem that says what I think a little better:
The table is brimming with good things to eat;
We’re surrounded by family and friends; what a treat.
The feelings that fill us today can’t be beat;
It’s Thanksgiving Day, and it all feels complete.
But other days, sometimes, things don’t seem so fine;
Those days are not polished and don’t seem to shine.
It’s then in our minds, we forget all the good,
And think of the things we would get, if we could.
On days when our thinking causes us dread,
If we could remember, it’s all in our head,
And not let our minds take our gratitude away,
Then we’d make every day like Thanksgiving Day.

The more I am thankful, the less I am ungrateful and less disappointed.
