Today is #ThankfulThursday. I usually try to post a few #ThankfulThursday tweets on Twitter, but this morning, my heart is full…and Twitter is only 140 characters.
I am thankful for so much in my life, and try to live each and every day with gratitude in my heart. I can always think of “more” that I want, but never let what I “want” overshadow all the things I “have.”
This morning, I am #Thankful for friends who always respond when I need help in the middle of the night.
This morning, I am #Thankful to learn that a dear friend who is very ill is still with us, and hopefully, doing better.
This morning, I am #Thankful for the #unconditionallove given to me by my family.
We have so many blessings in our lives, some so small we may not even think of them as blessings.
I can flip a switch on my wall, and suddenly my house is warm on cold nights.
I can go to my pantry for a snack, and always find something to eat.
I can turn a lever and have fresh water.
I can pick up the device of my choice and be in touch with anyone, anytime, anywhere.
I can learn something new every single day, broadening my world and expanding my horizons.
I can write and publish a book.
There is always something to be #thankful for.
Yes, I want a new computer, and yes, I’d love a new car. But my computer is working, and my car is comfortable and dependable. I’m #thankful that I have a computer, and a car.
Mostly, I’m #thankful for my #family and my #friends. And #thankful that my Dad, even though he’s been gone five years now, still touches my life every now and then.
Life gets busy and chaotic. Most of the time, actually. But I know I’m a better person when I live my life with #gratitude in my #attitude, and take the time to “smell the roses.”
