Food, drink, a house, a home, a family, love, compassion, respect, happiness, good health, honesty, safety, security, knowledge, guidance, friendship, work, rest, sleep, water, air, clothing, warmth, laughter, kindness, conversation, justice, light, rain – the list of bounties and benefits that most of us receive is a long one.

Ask yourself: which of these have you truly given thanks for?
