Thanks giving is a time to appreciate what we've received in life due to the kind acts of others. This family lives in a make shift bamboo hut on the beach of Bacolod Philippines. They eat a simple meal of plain rice with some sauce for flavoring, once in a while they get to have some fish to go with the rice. They're a recipient of an NGO I was volunteering for. They thanked me for helping them, in turn, I thank them for amplifying my appreciation for all that I have. For anyone who might be puzzled by the title of the image, it's the title of Norman Rockwell's famous Thanksgiving dinner.

Location: Bacolod Philippines
