Special to the Sun-Gazette
As the hustle and bustle of the holiday season approaches, people tend to forget what their thankful for.
I admit that every once and awhile I forget what I'm thankful for and I act like my problems are the worst problems in the world, but then I realize that many people won't have a Thanksgiving dinner and they have nothing to be thankful for.
That being said, many people help out the needy by volunteering at a local soup kitchen, home delivery for the elderly or even doing simple things as checking in on a neighbor or visting people at local nursing homes.
This Thanksgiving I am thankful for having a very good friend, having a roof over my head, my family and being healthy and having a good Thanksgiving dinner.
So in conculsion I think many of us - myself included, should give thanks. Well until next time!
