As we celebrate Thanksgiving Day in the United States (and CFCA’s 30th anniversary, which was Nov. 20), may we be especially thankful ñ for the gift of gratitude!
It’s not unusual for CFCA sponsors who visit the communities where we work to feel overwhelmed by the gratitude of those who live there.
Many travelers are deeply touched and even humbled by this experience.
What sponsors come to learn at such times is the importance of allowing people to be thankful.
They learn that gratitude is a blessing not only for those who receive it, but also for those who express it.
Thankfulness is healing. It lifts us out of ourselves and forms bonds of solidarity that beg to be celebrated with fervent joy.
Happy Thanksgiving to our CFCA community!
