This evening I went to the monthly board meeting of our area homeless services organization. I noticed a sign on our office door which advised that we are out of funds for the rest of the month. It’s the 15th. Thanksgiving is next week. Two weeks and a holiday during which time we have no more funds for the area homeless.
So today I am thankful for “enough”. We have plenty of healthy food, comfortable shelter, clothing, reliable transportion, good health insurance, money to pay our bills, etc. Too many around the world and yes, even in our small town, don’t have those things so tonight I am giving thanks for the blessings of “enough” and praying for those who aren’t so fortunate.
