Remember too, the last half of the word thanksgiving is giving. You might not have much to give, but following our slogan by doing your Good Turn every day is a terrific ways to say thanks. Help shovel a neighbor’s sidewalk. Visit an elderly person. Just do something simple like holding a door open for somebody. Whatever your Good Turn, don’t accept anything in return, except perhaps a “Thank you”. This will show your leaders that they time they gave you is making you a better man.
This Thanksgiving, really commit yourself to taking the time every day to “Do a Good Turn Daily” and offer God a prayer of thanksgiving for all you have.
