SALT LAKE CITY — “Never had much to speak of in the way of money, but I never felt poor. I always felt God gave me more than I knew what to do with.”

Thanksgiving is more than a holiday, it's an attitude. As in the video, this time of year gives us an opportunity to reflect on the things that matter most, no matter our circumstances. It's also a time to tell those we love how much they mean to us.

From his fruit farm to his family, his photography hobby and his faith, the man in the video brings to mind the simple things that fill our lives with goodness and joy, comfort and safety.

“I don’t know what else to be but grateful,” he said.

Take some time during the upcoming week to share this video with your friends and tell them what you're thankful for this year.
