I was going to post this yesterday bit I fell asleep. I have been seeing and hearing a lot about people cataloging what they are thankful for. That’s just peachy, sparky.
But gratitude requires and object or it is as meaningless as a 21st century president apologizing for events 50 to 100 years ago.
You have to be grateful TO someone, or your gratitude is really nothing more than saying “I am glad I got this stuff, it makes me happy”.
If you are grateful for the dinner, then thank the cook and the guy who paid for it. His work provided the means. If you are grateful for your car, then thank the person who worked to buy it. If you are grateful for those things that you think could only have come from God, THEN THANK GOD.
Being “grateful” without being grateful to someone, is meaningless. Don’t you already have enough meaninglessness in your life without adding Thanksgiving day to it too?
