THANKFUL THURSDAY! / LIFE IS NOT AWAYS EASY
When life is hard, it’s a challenge to be grateful for anything.
I’m not sure why this is so, but I do know that it is in fact true. When people face challenges, they tend to forget the many blessings they have in their life that they can (and should) be grateful for.
But you know that no matter what is happening in your life there is always something to be thankful for
A am thankful for
My cell phone
My ability to grow and learn
My freedom to worship in any church I choose
My ability to choose how I want to live my life
For books to read and eyes to see with
For the opportunity to eat fresh fruits and vegetables even though I didn't grow them
For being able to take a walk on a pretty fall day, many cannot
To live in a country in which others are willing to die to protect our freedom
for my car and being able to drive where I need to go
For the gift of laughter and humor in my life
For the clean water I have to drink
For the clothes I have to wear
For being able to learn something new every day.
My list could go on forever I suppose so I'll add just one more thing that I'm thankful for and that is for all your prayers and good thoughts for my granddaughter. I do believe in the power of prayer and know that each prayer is answered. God's timing is perfect.
I hope my list has given you some fuel for thought and that today will be a THANKFUL Thursday for you too.
