If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the million who will not survive the week.
If you have food in your refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep, you are richer than 75 percent of the world.
If you have money in the bank or in your wallet, you are among the top 80 percent of the worlds wealthy.
If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly thankful , you are blessed because the majority can, but most do not.
It's THANKFUL Thursday!
I don't think there was or ever will be a time I couldn't find something to be thankful for and this week is certainly no exception.
I'm thankful for my family and friends,
For my health and that of my family too
For the wonderful smells of cinnamon and apples that remind me of fall
For a good book to read on a cool evening
For the opportunity to spend time with my grandchildren
For cooler days.
For this summer which was filled with many happy times
And of course I'm always thankful for another new day. Waking up to a quiet morning and a good cup of coffee is always a blessing. I try to smile more than I frown and I laugh a lot. Mostly at myself.
Being thankful is one habit I'm glad I formed. It just wouldn't be right at all if I didn't take some time out to count the many blessings that come my way.
I hope that your Thursday is filled with many things to be THANKFUL for too.
