Wishing You a Thanksgiving Filled With Gratitude

Sometimes I get so wrapped up with the latest and greatest gadgets that I tend to lose sight of how truly blessed I am. Today is a day of reflection and introspection where we can set aside our egos and hectic lifestyles and pause to express our gratitude. For those of you who are in the US, I hope you are able to share this festive day with special friends and close family.

In the above photo, you'll find children from the Vasti Vidhalaya School in Khairat, India who were provided with $100 XO laptops from the One Laptop per Child (OLPC) organization as India's pilot study. With these laptops, the children are able to learn English, to draw, paint, learn math, chat, and play memory games. Before the children start their lessons on their new laptops, they offer prayers.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones.

It appears that younger individuals give thanks for materialistic things, whereas older individual give thanks for families coming together and for friends

I am happy for my laptop as well. Even though I complain about it because it doesn't work half the time, I am so much luckier and am more thankful.

I can never state all the things I'm thankful for. Just simply living and all the things I receive due to that fact. Happy Thanksgiving! <3

With that said, I'm thankful for my laptop. Dad got it for me even when money was a bit tight so I could do well in college. And so I'm even more thankful those children can have their own. Happy Thanksgiving to you too Ms. Geek!! :D
