Thanksgiving and the holidays are not only about being thankful for all you have in your life, but are about being thankful for love as well. Love is the greatest possible act of human free will. Love can inspire, compel, motivate and encourage. It can cause you to make sacrifices, to be courageous, to be humble, to be kind, to understand others, and to reach out to them and include them in your own life. Thanksgiving and the holidays are a reminder that if you are alone, be the cause to bring others to you. And on the other hand, if we know someone who will be alone, we must take that step to reach out to them to ensure they know they are loved, wanted and needed. And this, like being thankful, should be practiced constantly.
