Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and everyone likes to take time to reflect on what they are thankful for. I have plenty of things to be thankful for; my husband, family, dogs, our home, my job, friends, health, food, this blog and all the people I have connected with.The thing is, shouldn’t we be reflecting on that every day? Not just the big obvious things either, but all the little things we take for granted…
Pain relievers, toilet paper, extension cords, soap, washing machines, light bulbs, coffee, cars, beer, HVAC systems, chocolate, and the list goes on and on.
So as we enter in to this holiday season, every time you get frustrated because four different people want you to come to their house to celebrate on the same day…be thankful that you have those four people in your lives who care enough to want you there.
When your child is screaming in the store and wants all 987 toys they see in front of them, take a deep breath and be thankful that your child is healthy enough to want those toys. Some parents will spend their holiday in the hospital with a child fighting for their lives, or mourning the one they lost or never got to meet.
And when you are stuck in the holiday mall traffic, be thankful that we have men and women every day who are risking their lives for our country to have freedom and petty things like commercialism.
And of course, Wednesday isn’t really Wednesday without a few confessions.
