So it’s thanksgiving week in Europe….or something like that….i’m not sure but what i’m sure of is that we don’t have a week or day put specifically officially recognised for thanksgiving in Uganda.
This got me wondering why thanksgiving day is not an international event…and then I figured, there’s probably a story behind how it all started, a story that the rest of us probably don’t relate to.
And then that got me thinking still….even if there is an origin for the *Western world’s* thanksgiving event, we all have stuff to be thankful for. I mean, waking up 365 days a year is not something we can take for granted…and not just waking up, but having a meal, clothing, shelter, family and friends, luxuries…..so many things; we ought to be thankful for all that.
There are so many people who don’t have the things you might have and truth be told, it is not possible to help everybody…..but the best way of showing God how grateful one is for the things he continues to do and provide, is to give back to the less fortunate. After all, sharing is caring. 🙂 That right there is true thanksgiving. 🙂
