Daily Word: Give Thanks NOW!!!

AllHipHop Staff

Happy Wins-day, my Grateful and Appreciative!

Welcome to the day before most people wait to give thanks! Today's Daily Word is dedicated to giving thanks NOW! Without getting too deep into the origins of Thanksgiving, it is simply a day that is set aside for us to spend time with our loved ones and show appreciation for each other and for all of the blessings we have and are going to receive!

For a long time, this day has become more about food than about giving thanks! As we ready ourselves for this festive day, it is imperative that you realize that Thanksgiving should never be a once a year occasion! Thanksgiving is a 365/7 Days-a-week event! Every day that you wake up is a day that you should be grateful for!

GIVE THANKS NOW!! Stop allowing people and events to dictate your gratitude! Realize that your higher power has blessed you beyond what you can be thankful for so, at minimum, you should not take your blessings for granted! Make sure that every single day that you are blessed to be alive, you are showing your gratitude by maximizing your FULL potential! As W.T. Purkiser once said, "It is not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, that determine the true measure of our thanksgiving."

"Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving." -W.T. Purkiser
