I’m getting ready to run out to my Dad’s and put up some blinds before class (wow. Life has been crazy recently.) but I was just talking to the girls about the families that wouldn’t be able to afford a Thanksgiving dinner…and the soldiers who are far away from home…and the soldiers who have made it home, but now have no home…and I was struck with sudden thankfulness. I am so thankful to have a warm home, two bright beautiful and healthy girls, a supportive husband w/a good job that brings him home every night, a stocked pantry, friends and family that are amazing, a church family that is literally a God-send, and more blessings than I can count. There are days when I got for hours without being thankful and that’s shameful. I am ashamed at my occasional discontent, boredom, and yes, even jealousy. How dare I? Who am I to be ungrateful for the abundance that is my life?
Today-I am grateful.
Today-I remember what God has given me.
Today-I am hugging my girls tighter and pulling my husband close.
Today-I helped a family in need provide Thanksgiving dinner for their loved ones.
Today-I smiled at a stranger, just because.
Today-I am thankful.
What are you thankful for today?
