As a Christian, my sense of thankfulness comes from my relationship with God and my understanding that He has given me so much. But you don't have to be a Christian to be thankful. Neither do you have to be rich, healthy, or loved. We are a spoiled people who seem to be ready to be cynical or mopey even amidst wealth, vitality, and comfort. We ought to practice gratitude. It doesn't need to be faked. Tomorrow, when you fill yourself with turkey, consider yourself filled up with gratitude too. Happy Thanksgiving to all.
