I try to live in a spirit of gratitude every day, but this holiday is a chance to spend more time meditating upon a few specific reasons to be thankful. I hope you’ll read over this list slowly and think about your own life.
1.) God the Father.
2.) Jesus Christ, His only Son, Our Lord.
3.) My devoted, loving, and godly husband, John.
5.) Our beautiful daughters, Jill and Ann.
6.) That all four of our parents are still in good health.
7.) Extended family and friends.
8.) That I have a great boss and an interesting, challenging job I believe in and enjoy.
9.) The wonderful writers and other publishing professionals I work with.
10.) To live in America.
Now for a few fun reasons I’m thankful:
2.) I have a good stuffing recipe I learned from a missionary, Matilda Alexander.
3.) I don’t feel compelled to rise at 3 AM or earlier to stand in line at a store for Black Friday specials.
4.) Mild Virginia weather.
5.) That we can nap after dinner.
I only highlighted a few reasons I’m thankful. Surely you have many you can add. Whether serious or fun, what are you thankful for today, and every day?
