Giving Thanks

Today is Thanksgiving Day in the United States. A day for many to get together with family and friends and express thanks for the many blessings they’ve received.

I believe thankfulness, or gratitude, is a key ingredient for a successful life. In my observation, thankful people are happier and they go farther than unhappy people, and they have a lot more friends.

We don’t have to limit Thanksgiving to just one day of the year. In fact, I’m working on cultivating an attitude of gratitude every day.  But on this Thanksgiving Day, here are some of the things I’m thankful for:

  • My faith
  • My beautiful wife and five great children
  • Friends
  • Good health
  • The ability to do the work I love
  • The ability to invest my talents in causes and organizations I believe in
  • The mentors who have invested in my life and taught me much of what I share here
  • New friends who have encouraged me as I’ve developed this site:  Lynn Terry, Mark Mason, and Free Money Finance.

What are you thankful for?
