You Don’t Have to Be American to be Thankful

This week’s prompt is: Being Thankful


On last Thursday I wished my American readers a very happy thanksgiving. In the comments many wished me back. When I explained that I don’t celebrate thanksgiving, a blogger said that we all have something to be thankful for so we all should celebrate thanksgiving.

This indeed is very true. We all have so many things to be grateful for and when we express them or write them down, we realize their significance more.

Things I’m grateful for are, in no particular order;

My health, and my faith

My family and their health

All the luxury, like home, transport, food, availability of affordable health care

The ability to read and write, and blog

My friend old and recent who have been by my side through thick and thin.

My blogging friends who I feel are like my family

My country Pakistan where I’m free to be myself.

Independence of thought,enlightenment and awareness.

  1. I love this response, i also respect your beliefs in not celebrating Thanksgiving and not needing a particular day to feel thankful for all you have! but admire how well you handled someone’s criticism of your own beliefs ❤️
