This Family Woke Up Wrapped Like Christmas Presents, and Everybody Needs to See Why

What if we all woke up every morning realizing that we had SO MUCH to be thankful for instead of just focusing on what we don’t have? This video has gone viral (for good reason) and aims to challenge us and change our perspective on gratefulness.

It’s like the end of “It’s a Wonderful Life” or “A Christmas Carol” all over again (you know, the parts when just being alive is enough to jump and shout for joy). We all have “life” happening all around us, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still be grateful this Christmas season! In fact, if you’re reading this, you own some sort of smartphone or computer, which means you have access to electricity and probably even a job, transportation to and from said job, food to eat, a place to live, etc. The fact is, waking up suddenly to even half of the average American lifestyle would be like winning the lottery for most people around the world.

What do you take for granted? What are you most thankful for? Let us know in the comments section below!
