Today is Thanksgiving Day for people in the US. Many will be joining their families to celebrate what they are thankful for. For some people who have no family, or whose family are distant (emotionally and physically), or for anyone who feels alone on Thanksgiving Day, it may be hard to count blessings when there is no one with whom to share your happiness or content for what you do have. For those who don’t have a stable home, or any at all, it may be hard to feel grateful on Thanksgiving Day. When there’s no food with which to celebrate, what is there to feast on to acknowledge thankfulness for whatever reasons? I don’t have an answer for that. I hardly believe that anyone does that will satisfy everyone who feels like there isn’t much to be thankful for. All I can say is that on Thanksgiving Day, I, individually try to think about what I do have. But it’s not at all wrong to feel upset when it seems like there’s not much to feel grateful for. – Allyson
