I truly believe that no matter what you are struggling through in life, there is always something to be thankful for. Today is of course the day of the year when thankfulness is most on everyone's minds, so here are a few things I am thinking of now that I am so grateful for.
I am thankful...
~To have been given life, to have breath in me
~For the core parts of my life that make me feel blessed: faith, family, friends, food
~For the small joys and excitements in each day
~For God's grace
~For the dreams and goals that have been put upon my heart
~For my roots and the way I was raised
~For the gift of friendship
~For the beautiful earth
~For nature- breezes, trees, the sun coming up everyday, beautiful skies
~That there are babies and children
~For moments and precious memories
~To have a roof over my head
~For my parents and how hard they have worked to provide for me
~For love and a sense of belonging
~For everything that is inspiring
~That God created sweet animals
~For my dog who can put a smile on my face no matter what
~For the unique and beautiful seasons!
~For every blessing I have ever had
I reflect on these things as I sit comfortably in our living room, full and content and with family close, all of which I am thankful for as well. It has been such a wonderful day... it means different things to many: a day of thanks, food, family, football and even getting ready for a day of shopping tomorrow... but in the end the thing that matters most is who you spend your day and meal with and all the blessings and moments that happen along the way. Yet another thing to be thankful for! And not just today but everyday.
Hope your day has been blessed and wonderfully spent!!
