Thanksgiving is for gratitude. Yet, sometimes gratitude feels as far away as the mountains in the distance. You can see them, but you wouldn’t say you’re there. Yet, thankfully, gratitude isn’t always an isolated feeling. It doesn’t need to be. It can be mingled with other emotions. And gratitude often isn’t a natural emotion at all, but rather a choice of faith as we remember the message of Jesus in the midst of our circumstances.
