Gratitude For So Many Things
Authored by: Sean  

Eckhart von Hochheim aka Meister Eckhart, the German theologian said, “If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.” What a magnificently profound statement this is.

Most often, most of us forget to give thanks for the simple things in life. Food on the table, friends, family, a book to read, the love of a pet – if you have any of them, even one of them, then you are blessed and you can be grateful! Devoting a day for showing some gratitude for all the good things in your life is possible when you observe Thanksgiving on the 28th of November this year!

 

Why that particular day? Well, as we all know, Thanksgiving Day is celebrated with great joy and merriment in the USA on the 4th Thursday of every November. This year, 28th of November, people will continue the tradition of Thanksgiving that began in 1621.

There are some traditional foods, activities and prayers that go into making this Day. Turkey, giving thanks to God and parades are just some of the ways in which people commemorate this event. Many people also give gifts on this Day.

 

So, why not use Thanksgiving Day to show love and gratitude to someone who has looked after you? Maybe your mother who seems to be supermom juggling a zillion things? Perfumes, books and even doing some of the work she does are great ways to show love! Or maybe you could get her the DKNY Bangle NY8494? It is a very unique looking watch indeed.

Your father probably continues to influence your life in many ways even today! So perhaps a Tissot Quadrato T0055101105700 with its powerful presence is a great gift for him.

And a friend. Oh what can I say about a good friend? So to borrow Ralph Waldo Emerson’s words, “It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.” There are plenty of watches that you can give your generous friends, so why not think of the Nixon 42-20 Chrono A037 All Black/Tortoise?

It is Thanksgiving Day after all and it is really not the size of the gift that matters but the size of the heart. Have plenty to be thankful for and many opportunities to express this wonderful emotion too! Happy Thanksgiving to you!
