On this Thanksgiving day, remember that holidays are not joyous times for everyone. There are many reasons why some people find it difficult to cope on days of celebration - especially those days that traditionally involve family gatherings.
So, on holidays like today, be extra kind and attentive to others. You don't have to do much to make a difference. A warm smile, a tender touch, even a friendly face can ease the gloom in someone else's life.
It only take a moment to be kind to another, but the effect of a caring gesture can last forever.
The world can be a lonely place
If but for a friendly face
A few words said with kind intent
A smile, a hug, a compliment
Can brighten up a cloudy day
And chase the loneliness away
