In this solo episode, Dr. Derrick Burgess is here to share his gratefulness regarding life, sports, and medicine. He will share with us how God has blessed the different areas of his life and how he was consistent from the first day of his journey in this podcast until now. 


What are the incredibly unexpected things that have happened in your life? 


The thankful heart opens our eyes to a multitude of blessings that continually surround us. There can be no doubt that the God of Almighty has given every one of us something to be thankful for. Though there may be times when other people have more of what we have, we still receive reasons to say "thank you." Despite the hardships we encountered, we fought, stood firm, and thrived. 


The annual celebration of the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States is arriving! Thus, we must take this excellent opportunity to take a step back and consider how God has blessed the various facets of our lives. Hence, we must never forget the hands stretched to support us amid our struggling days. Those people who made themselves available to contribute to our growth. Those few who still stand believe we can do something great out of the dreams we keep on chasing. Indeed, we can never know beforehand what wonderful things wait for each of us. Still, we understand that the quickest way to contentment is to be grateful.


"During these times with rising inflation and lumen recession fears, the most affordable thing and gift we can give this holiday season is to give thanks." – Dr. Derrick Bugess
