Depending on where you are in the world you might be celebrating Thanksgiving this time of year.
Thanking God for a bountiful harvest is not unknown in other parts of the world. Apart from America, there are a number of religions and countries that celebrate Thanksgiving Day in their own various forms during the harvest season. The festivals are dedicated to thank the Lord for his blessings and the abundance and prosperity that he bestowed upon us are their underlying themes.

I am wondering how you celebrate Thanksgiving where you are located. Do you celebrate something similar to Thanksgiving?
Most important, even if you do not celebrate Thanksgiving one other reason to celebrate is to be grateful for what you have.
We would like to hear what you are grateful for. Why are you grateful? If you are not grateful for anything at this time because things are not going so well; maybe we can help?
I’ll get us started in our conversation and sharing.
I am grateful for having a loving wife who stood by me while I spent 7 months in the hospital after I went completely blind instantly. 3 of those months she stayed by my side I was in a coma.
I am grateful I became completely blind in the age of technology that allows me to continue to work as a blind person and be as productive as I was when I had eyesight. Now I can provide for my family, help the customers I work with and helping others in my community and in the world.
I am very grateful to my family, friends and network of business relationships. These people supported me during hard times; believed in me and gave me the hope I needed to succeed.
I am very grateful to God to allow me to live so I can continue to pursue my dreams. I could have easily died while in my coma. I am very glad I did not.
We look forward to hearing what you are thankful for and why.
