I saw a picture of a mug today that said, “Someone somewhere is thinking of you.”
My first thought when I saw it was realizing that I believe that statement is truer for other people than for me. But as I thought a little more, I thought about the fact that we probably don’t let people know we’re thinking about them as often as we should – and that there are a lot of people in my life – people who are important to me – who probably have no idea how many people are thankful for them.
I think that’s probably true for most people. They don’t know how many people are thankful for them (and even if they do have some idea, they might not really be able to make themselves believe it).
I have a message for them – and for you – to consider this Thanksgiving: “As you take time to be thankful today, take a moment, too, to remind yourself of all the people who are thankful for you.”
