A time to stop taking things for granted and to remember those things we SHOULD BE THANKFUL FOR. What are those things? Anything you have that you didn’t work for. What do I mean by that. Well, you may thank your employer for giving you a job but you don’t thank the employer for giving your proper due……your paycheck. You thank your special love for loving you, not because you worked for it but because they decided you were worthy of their love.Sometimes our perceptions are little skewed and we may think that there isn’t much to be thankful for but I bet if you sit down in a quite place with pen and paper you could easily come up with ten (10) things that you can be truly thankful for. Remember you can only be thankful for things that were giving to you and not worked for. So here are mine:I am thankful that . . .

  • Jesus loves me and did something about it
  • Mom loves me and lets me know it
  • Dad loved me and taught me
  • Grandma loves me … even when I don’t call as often as I should
  • I have the ability and power to make a difference in my life
  • I have the ability and power to make a difference in other people’s life
  • I was born in a country that gives me an opportunity to be successful
  • I was born in a family that loves me now matter what
  • I can read-I can write
  • I am healthy
  • I can walk (do you know what has to happen in order for you to walk? Click here for the mechanics of walking)
  • I can use my hands and am rather dexterous
  • I haven’t broken any bones (parents taught me not to be stupid)
  • I don’t have to go to a tanning bed (DNA baby)
  • I don’t live with my parents (They reared me to be independent and get out of the house)
  • I am self-employed (I didn’t create capitalism)
  • I have friends that love me and willing to help me in my time of need
  • There are those who are willing in invest in my life to make me a better person
  • My heart beat yet another time
  • Another day to create an environment of success.  

There are those who are willing to be honest with me even when I don’t want them to in order to make me a better person.I think that this list will get longer as the day goes on.
