“Moses said, ‘This will happen when the Lord gives you meat to eat in the evening, and bread to the full in the morning; for the Lord hears your grumblings which you grumble against Him. And what are we? Your grumblings are not against us but against the Lord’” (Exodus 16:8).

Thanksgiving isn’t a day on the calendar but a perspective on life, regardless of circumstances. As Dr. Seuss reminds us in, Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?,you could have been a Schlottz—crumble-horn, web-footed, green-bearded, whose tail is tangled with unsolvable knots. The lighthearted lessons he offered children are profoundly true for each of us—“It’s a troublesome world. All the people who’re in it are troubled with troubles almost every minute. You ought to be thankful, a whole heaping lot, for the places and people you’re lucky you’re not.” Let us be thankful in all things.
