I Know It's A Little Early, But

Happy Thanksgiving

This is the time where we can really reflect on God's goodness in our lives. Being thankful is one of the secrets to life success. If you can't appreciate the little, then you may not appreciate the big. Don't want to have that 'never satisfied' attitude.

I know I have a lot, but in the same breath, I don't, depending on if I'm comparing myself with someone who is very successful and rich.
But I do know one thing, I have life, health, and peace. So priceless and precious.

Here are some of the things I am thankful for:

  • Love
  • Family
  • Healthy children
  • Loving husband
  • House
  • 2 cars (I remember the day we had to share 1)
  • Heat to stay warm during these times
  • Job (though it's not the best, I have one)
  • My parents (both of my parents are still alive and together, now that's a blessing!)
  • My sisters and their families
  • Food
  • Helping others (because it keeps me grounded and focus)
  • Friends (from elementary, to blogville, it's a blessing and amazing how many friends I have made from this blog)
  • Eyesight (I was once blind as a bat)
  • Hair on my head (this is taken for granted, but I so thank God for the hair on my head. Some ppl are bald, or can't grow their hair)

There are many other blessings I try not to take for granted, but again, those are just a few.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Let's be thankful for what we have.
