So Many Reasons to be Thankful!

Every day should be Thanksgiving Day.  I don’t mean that we should gather with family and friends to eat and watch football every day (although that doesn’t sound too bad).  I mean we need to be thankful every day.  No matter what our circumstances are there are many things to be thankful for.  Of course if you focus on what you don’t have you’ll always be wishing for more.  But, if you focus on what you DO have, there will be too many things to count.

Today I was so thankful to be able to run 4+ miles (yes, with a pirate patch).  As I ran early on this Thanksgiving Day the streets were very quiet and stores were closed.  It was a great way to start a busy day.  After my run I was thankful to just relax with my wife and two terrific teenage sons for a while.  Then we all headed to my parents for a traditional Thanksgiving meal with my sisters and their families.  All the nieces and nephews were home and everyone including my parents are healthy.  That’s a lot to be thankful for. 

So today and every day I thank God for all I have and for what He has done for me. 

Happy Thanksgiving!
