Be Thankful for the Simple Things
A Day of Thanks
What does it mean to be thankful? Around this time of the year, people reflect on what they are grateful for. They think about the people in their lives and the things they have. They come together with loved ones and enjoy a meal together. Some families might have the tradition for each family member to share one thing that they are thankful for. What will you say this year when it is your turn to share?
Many will share the old clichés like, “I am thankful for my family.” Or, “I am thankful for my friends, home, pets, food, etc….” Of course these are all very important to be thankful for…probably the most important! But did you ever stop to think about those random little things in your daily life that make life just a little more pleasant?

Remember to Thank a Veteran!
Veterans Day is November 11th and it is a day set aside to honor all American veterans, both living and dead, who have dedicated themselves to the loyal service of our great country. It is a time to give thanks to the American veterans and show them appreciation for the great sacrifices that they have made in their lives to preserve the freedom of our country.
Because it is a federal holiday, some American workers and students will have the privilege of enjoying the holiday free from work or school. On this special day, how nice would it be if every veteran could receive even a small gesture that shows they are appreciated? Even the simplest act can mean so much!
There are many ways to show appreciation to veterans on this day. One of the most meaningful activities that people can do is to send notes or cards to hospitalized veterans or veterans living in retirement homes. And a brief, in person visit could be even better! Ask a veteran about his service…Sometimes just lending an attentive ear is enough to show appreciation. Other simple ways to honor a veteran on November 11th include attending a Veterans Day event, flying the American flag, or donating to an organization that directly helps veterans in need.
So this year, on November 11th, remember and appreciate those who have sacrificed to serve our country. Take just a moment to thank a veteran!
