I get that every day should be a ‘Thanksgiving Day’, but I like having a day set apart.
Thanksgiving interrupts my rhythms and reminds me to think about the discipline of thankfulness. Check out this Nouwen quote:
“I always thought of gratitude as a spontaneous response to the awareness of gifts received, but now I realize that gratitude can also be lived as discipline. The discipline of gratitude is the explicit effort acknowledge that all I am and have is given to me as a gift of love, a gift to be celebrated with you.”
