I once heard a speaker say that you could give everyone a sheet of paper with a line down the middle, ask everyone to write all the reasons to be happy on the left side of the paper and all the reasons to be sad on the right side of the paper, and everyone could fill up both sides. The question is: Which side of the paper will you live your life on?
This week, by holiday, this particular nation asks everyone to pause and live on the thankful side.
I am thankful for the invitation. I believe that I will.
