just beginning

        What if Thanksgiving isn’t over?  What if it’s just beginning?  You’ve already filled a whole month with gratitude.  What if you chose to fill the other eleven, too?  I bet it would change your year more than most of the things that take a whole lot more effort.  Here’s a for instance: if you keep on setting aside a few short minutes every day to write down five things you’re thankful for, by next Thanksgiving you’ll have almost two thousand tales of grace -- and that doesn’t even count all the thank-yous from all the other hours of your days.  By next Thanksgiving, thanksgiving will be the other 364 days, too.
