Be Grateful, Not Gluttonous

In the United States and other places around the world, many are celebrating Thanksgiving.  The holiday has a long tradition going back centuries.  It is a day and time set aside to focus on the virtue of gratitude.  Usually after the harvest has finished, people use the time to feast and be grateful for they many blessings they have.

Unfortunately, many (including your's truly) use the occasion to expand their stomachs, unbutton their pants and let the food flow!  No doubt, it is a great time to loosen up a bit.  Just be mindful that the occasion is to celebrate gratitude and not gluttony.  Let's all be more mindful not to replace a virtue with a vice.

And before you accuse me of being too preachy, I'll just say this post is more for me than it is for you!

Happy Thanksgiving!
