Give Thanks

- Wednesday, November 25, 2015

A month ago when visiting my mother, she taught me another valuable lesson.

Mum is 89 and has been struggling with several painful, physical ailments.  When I got to her room she was laboring to her chair.  She sat down with the pain very evident in her face, she looked at me and said, ‘at least I can still walk’.

She then reminded me of her mother, my grandmother, who was the most positive person she knew.  She taught my mother to always look on the bright side.

Mum then looked at me, her countenance changed in an instant, and flashed a smile that lit up the room and said, “Let’s play the thankful game!” We then spent the next several minutes sharing what we were thankful for.

Now my mom’s health didn’t change in the moment, but her attitude and thoughts were different and it showed on her face.  She lit up the room!

Thanksgiving is my favorite time of year and as we take time out of our busy schedules and visit around the dinner table, you are encouraged to play the ‘Thankful Game’.  Each person shares one or more things they are thankful for.  It will be the highlight of your time together.

By the way…this game can also be played at work.

Here’s what I shared with my mom when we played the thankful game.  “I am thankful for a mother who loves me unconditionally, loves her God confidently, and poured so much of herself into my life.  Mum you are the best!”

I am also thankful for each of YOU who go out and make a difference in the lives of others.

Live Passionately!
