It just takes a little thought. I am always grateful for something, anything. I know that there are many that view Thanksgiving as a day hat is supposed to make up for all the other days in life when things are too chaotic to give a hoot about anyone or anything. I think of it as just another day to make sure that someone knows that they are not forgotten.
I do believe that sometimes it takes a long time to figure out how to give back.
A millionaire Chinese businessman has bulldozed the wooden huts and muddy roads where he grew up – and built luxury homes for the people who lived there.
Xiong Shuihua was born in Xiongkeng village in the city of Xinyu, southern China and said that his family had always been well looked after and supported by residents in his childhood.
So when the 54-year-old ended up making millions in the steel industry he decided to repay the favour – for free.
The business tycoon decided to return to the village and give everybody a place of their own to live.
Five years ago, the area was run down and many lived in basic homes.
But the area has been transformed in recent years and now 72 families are enjoying life in luxury new flats.
Meanwhile, 18 families, who were particularly kind to the businessman, were given villas of their own in a project costing close to £4million.
After moving in, he even promised three meals a day to the older residents and people on a low income to make sure they could get by.
Chinese businessman builds luxury flats for his old village for free. I’ll be driving some warm meals to those who have the day off, but are not able to cook for themselves. It’s nothing to know that I have ensured that someone is not forgotten today. Have a blessed Thanksgiving Day today.
