For Day 16 of “Thankful November”, I’m extremely grateful that we have food in our pantry.
As we approach Thanksgiving, most people and families are abuzz about turkeys, side dishes and the most wonderful desserts. When I look into our pantry, I see it filled with healthy food. But then I think about those who aren’t as fortunate as we are.
Many people go hungry each day and a lot of them are children. I’m thankful for programs like our local food banks and school programs in our community that help those in need but there are still many who go to bed hungry each night.
Even though it’s only a small gesture, we will be making side dishes for our church this Thanksgiving as they prepare to give out a couple thousand turkey dinners for families who couldn’t afford dinner for the holiday. It’s only a small contribution but everything helps.
So I feel blessed that we have food available to prepare and nourish us.
What are you thankful for today?
