Thanksgiving is not about a huge turkey and more feast or the grand consumer discounts.
While these things may make us happy, will they bring us lasting fulfillment or temporary pleasure?
Thanksgiving is about the quality time shared with friends and family counting our blessings and being grateful for all in our lives, no matter how small.
Oftentimes, the large things we can see will only make us happy temporarily, while the small things we feel will make us happy for a lifetime.
Today give a bigger thanks for the support and encouragement from loved ones, good health, and access to healthy food and clean water each day of the year rather than your expensive watch, fancy car, or upscale house.
