Giving Thanks

It has been shown in studies that the giving of thanks, being thankful, and having an attitude of gratitude is a healing thing for your soul, and for relationships between folks. I think about that on a day like today. However; I should think about that everyday.

Here are some things that I find myself thinking about lately. This isn't an all inclusive list, but here ya go....

I've got a lot to smile about.
First off, I've got my health, and I get to do things with that health that are a lot of fun for me. I get to enjoy my wife, and my family because of that health. Pretty thankful for that for sure.

I owe a lot to those that went before me.
I recognize that I have a lot of what I do because of the hard work, sacrifices, and love of those that went before me. A lot of those people I don't even know. Many of them are dead and gone, but some of them are still alive and with us. Better thank them while we can.

I'm thankful for where I live.
I'm also very thankful I am blessed to live where I live. Not everyone has the life, the freedom, and the opportunities we do. I'm grateful for being put here where I am.

There is more, a lot more, that I am thankful for. I hope you find some time to reflect upon those things in your life today, and everyday.

Happy Thanksgiving!
