In 1974, William DeVaughn had a song titled, “Be Thankful for what you got!” At the time, we sang and hand danced to the song not knowing the true meaning of its lyrics. The greater our life experiences, the wiser we become. DeVaughn’s lyrics (below) reflected the times, but the meaning extended beyond the seventies. It’s relevancy is timeless! “Though you may not drive a great big Cadillac You may not have a car at all But remember brothers and sisters You can still stand tall. Just be thankful for what you got.” Yes, we should be thankful and be grateful for what we have; not what we don’t have! We have more than enough compared to many. Our blessings are over flowing compared to some. If you need a reminder, you don’t have to look far … just look around! Photo credit:
