I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving who celebrates the holiday.
I have many things to be thankful in life, especially for still having good health and a lot of people who love and care for me, of which I am truly grateful.
On the other side of the equation, I feel a sense of sadness for all of those who are suffering and struggling to get by in a cruel world. My thoughts and prayers go out to them, many of whom I am close to and love and care for on a personal level.
Having to accept that I am powerless and am often taken advantage of because of my kindness and compassion is no easy task, but I know God is in control and that everything happens according to His will for my life. I can only be responsible for my actions and will continue to be a kind, gentle, and loving person regardless of what life hands me, but I really do wish I could help others more than I do without harming myself in the process.
Being human is not always easy, but it sure beats being a turkey during the holiday season. 🙂
