In today's age, this is a secular occasion when families come together to thank God for all the blessings He bestows all year round. It is a good way to take a break from the fast track of life and stop for a while to acknowledge and be thankful for the goodness that fills our lives.
Giving thanks is one of the most beautiful act. It not only about acknowledging the doer of a good deed but it also helps us to focus on the good that surround our lives. So many times, we forget to count our blessings and keep worrying about not-so-good things in and around us.
If all of us could modify our perspective just a little bit and focus on our blessings and share the happiness these blessings give us with others, the world would become a better place to live. Habit of knowing our blessings and recognizing their sources reduces our anger, increases our happiness and fortifies peace in our hearts and environment.
