I hear a lot of talk this year about thankful for this, thankful for that.
So, WHO do you thank? I mean, if you have things to be thankful for, surely someone recieves your thanks, or is it just some nebulous No One (who, really, would deserve thanks for Nothing, if at all, don’t you think?).
Being “thankful” and not thanking SOMEONE, someone specific, is not being thankful, it’s just mush.
Look deeply at the things you are thankful for. SOMEONE other than yourself alone is due thanks for the blessings of possessions and health, family and friends… and it ain’t you, cos no matter what lies our society tells you, neither you nor anyone elseâ€”and certainly not Iâ€”deserve all the blessings y’all have. Oh, maybe you “deserve” some, but never all.
So WHO do you say “Thank you” to?
Better make a long, long list.
Tomorrow, I’ll post in this space about someone who knew much more about thankfulness than you very likely ever will. Oh, yes I will. Wanna bet?
