Although Thanksgiving has historical roots in religious and cultural traditions, it has long been celebrated as a secular holiday as well. It is day where everyone should have the opportunity to take just a moment to say thank you, not to a particular religion, but to Mother Nature for the fact that you are alive. Men are as resentful as they are grateful, but gratitude is the least of virtues; ingratitude the worst of vices. Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. The grateful man gets more than he asks. Therefore, gratitude is the sign of noble souls.
