Giving thanks encompasses the many ways we can express our feelings of gratitude, appreciation and recognition. Life is a cycle of events, always changing. How people express their feelings also changes depending on the events.
In the story book "Adventures of Nutty and Twittles Oh Nuts I Lost My Little Sister", a fun game of hide "n" seek appears to be heading towards a disastrous conclusion. In the end, Nutty was thankful his sister was found safe and sound. He was thankful for his friends reassuring words "stay calm we will help you". He was thankful to Mrs. Hoot his teacher for bringing Twittles home. He expressed his feelings of gratitude by saying he was sorry for not listening to her warnings and promised it would never happen again.
During our life, we can be lost and caught up in a circle of doubt. Especially when we think about what we do not have and believe, we need. To me giving thanks everyday to God for my family, my friends and my pet dog is the simplest of truths. This is what gives my life meaning and purpose.
