Food

Be thankful for food. In America the tradition is to celebrate the harvest and to eat a lot of food in fellowship while thanking God for all the food. Today, it has turned into a celebration of grocer stores and even bigger gut-busting meals, with little from the "harvest." But we should still be grateful. Not every country is so blessed to be able to afford such ridiculous meals.

Mental Health access in America is something to celebrate. Dispute some of the many problems and questions about Obamacare, one excellent benefit is greater access to mental health. A lot of countries do not have this, so it is something to be thankful for.
