President Gordon B. Hinckley's writes in his book Way to Be!:
Your very attitude toward life can be evidence of whether or not you are truly grateful for life, for the blessings you have, for the comforts and privileges and opportunities you enjoy, for the talents you have been given, for everything.So, this month, I'm going to make an extra effort to be thankful--for the usual and maybe even the not so obvious. I had intended to do a daily post during the month of November highlighting something that I am truly thankful for. I missed a day but I'll start it today anyway.
Let a spirit of thanksgiving guide and bless your days and nights. Work at it. You will find that it will yield wonderful results (p.21).
Today I am especially thankful for the freedoms and blessings of being a citizen of and living in the United States of America and I am grateful that I could exercise my right to vote today. I hope you did too.
