Tomorrow we give thanks. Sometimes, we forget to be thankful for the difficult things. We forget to be thankful for the exercise that brings us pain, but also a healthy body. We forget to give thanks for the arguments we have with the people we care about the most, because they have made our relationship stronger. We forget to be thankful for that challenging piece of advice given by someone we respect, because, although it stung, it made you a better person.
Be thankful for the fire. It is warm. Be thankful for the salve. It stings, but it heals. Most importantly, be thankful.
