Making changes can only only be done when we acknowledge what needs to be changed. It's that simple.
So, a day for giving thanks accomplishes two things. One, the intended purpose of giving thanks, and another, more stealth like purpose, the acknowledgement of things that we would like to change.
Anytime we can focus on the good in our lives, acknowledge them, and the need to improve the things that aren't so good, it is a great thing, no matter the day, or the reason. Having a special day is just a way of getting the majority of us all on the same page at the same time for all the right reasons.
And, for that, I am thankful.
