What Are You Thankful For?


It’s November again, and Facebook is going crazy with claimed blessings and thankful thoughts. I love it. They range from serious to odd. You know, things like, “I’m thankful that the cat didn’t puke in my shoe this morning, just all over the carpet.” Perspective!


I’ve come to love this modern-day tradition. And I wonder, does the conscious thought of our blessings change our daily actions? I’m thinking it does. When I take the time to think of how each of my children are blessings to me, my patients grows longer. When I consider how my husband supports me completely, I’m able to love the opportunity to do things for him. When I think of how grateful I am to have a home, I bear the constant maintenance with a different attitude. It’s like bringing the important part of the story to the surface.


It’s only November 2, not to late for you to join in. Consider posting your thankful thoughts this month, and maybe throughout the year too.
