Thankful is a very personal word with a very personal meaning. To one, thankful means having food on the table and a roof under which to sleep. To another, thankful means living in a mansion with a view of the universe. And to another, thankful means surviving another day in a war zone. While the people in these three examples lead vastly different lives, each has equal access to happiness.
Here are some tips on remembering to be thankful
Have a good time, enjoy life more often
Slow down and you'll recognize there’s something fresh about this moment
There are moments to think and work and earn. But there must be moments to lay down your arms, chill out, and enjoy

It’s beginning to look like winter here. We now have snow on the ground and it is cold out. BrrrChill! You’ll hear me saying that a lot now. It’s supposed to be TERRIFIC Tuesday, but I’ve yet to find anything more spectacular about Tuesday other than it is usually better than my Mondays.
My boss has ordered Turkeys for those that want them for Thanksgiving. We had a choice of a gift certificate or the Turkey and since I’m going away this year, I took the gift certificate. It’s really generous of him to do this for all the employees. We don’t do any holiday parties at work but he gives a gift at Thanksgiving and at Christmas.
I’m layered up today and have my good warm boots on too so I’m all set to greet winter when I step out the door. I’m so very thankful for my boots.
I owe, I owe,
It’s off to work I go…
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
