Today is a day for giving thanks, and I have so much for which to be thankful this Thanksgiving.
As I sit in a warm home, sipping coffee, I’m thankful for my home. As I remember the challenge of looking for a job for 4 months, I’m thankful to now have a job. As I think I the loved ones that we’ve lost, I’m so very thankful for the time we had with them. As I recover from a nagging cold, I’m thankful for my health. As I think of those that are lonely, I’m thankful for my family, friends and my husband. And as we remember those that came to our country all those years ago and celebrated Thanksgiving, I’m very thankful for the country in which we live and the freedoms we enjoy.
For all of the blessings I have, I want to make an effort to help those that don’t have quite so much. My challenge to myself this coming year is to get involved and make a difference – after all, I have so much for which to be thankful.
Happy Thanksgiving, and may your cup runneth over with blessings.
