I just want to take a second to acknowledge all of my dear readers and followers on this blog of mine. I am so thankful for all of your support, and it means so much to know that my words are being read and appreciated by so many people. Hopefully, you are all able to spend this afternoon celebrating with loved ones, filling your stomachs full of turkey and pie, as well as reflecting on all of your wonderful blessings.
For this post, I have decided to share 10 things that I am thankful for in no particular order:
- The food and clean drinking water on the table
- My faith
- Family and friends
- My heart to love
- My lungs that keep me breathing and alive
- My car
- My memory to remember those great moments in time
Feel free to share what you are thankful for in the comments below.
Even when things aren’t going our way and it feels like nothing is working out, there is still so much to be thankful for. Last week, I was reading the blog of a mother who’s son lost his leg in the battle against cancer. It broke my heart to read their story, but it made me remember how incredibly lucky I am to just stand here and breathe another day. I also read the post of another blogger who recently got hearing aides and is finally discovering this sound-filled world for the first time. The fact is, we take so many things for granted every single day, and many blessings (like the ability to walk and hear) are frequently overlooked.
Never forget the “simple” things, and always remember that our problems are very minimal in someone else’s eyes. Stop spending so much time complaining about life, and begin to see how beautiful it truly is… especially this week of Thanksgiving.
“Thanksgiving is a time to give, a time to love, and a time to reflect on the things that matter most in life”
Sending special Thanksgiving wishes from my family to yours! Happy Thanksgiving 2017! 🙂
I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is just TWO days away!
I am so thankful to spend all of this free time with my family and visit my grandparents for the week. It is so nice to step away from the everyday craziness and finally get rid of the sleep deprivation that had been haunting me for months. After three hours on the road, Thanksgiving is only TWO days away…
We are on the road TWO thanksgiving, are you ready?
