While it's easy to think about being thankful when there is a holiday created to focus on thankfulness, but I think I could be more thankful on a daily basis. In that vein, I'd like to list (below) many things that I should be thankful for every day. I appreciate all my readers and hope I can continue to serve as a helpful blogger. Happy Thanksgiving !!!!
I am thankful for:
Life and health in that I am stronger than last year
My ever patient wife, Sherry. Great adult children in Melissa, Bryon, Dave, Emily, Steve & Beth. Fantastic grand kids in Keegan, Karson, Xander, Gabriella, Hope, Kale, Nolan & Amanda.
My friends all over the world that stay in contact despite my issues
My customers, work associates and followers that keep me honest
The gifts that God gave me and continues to allow me to grow
Freedom to worship and to choose. Faith Bible Church & our study group.
Family and friends in glory today especially Andy.
I'm not sure if the happiness cycle starts with thankfulness or blessings, but it seems to be a cyclical phenomena. I think I will finish off 2015 and start 2016 with thankfulness. Sustaining thankfulness under all circumstances is the real trick, though. There are so many things to be thankful for in life, it's bewildering to figure out where to start.
