Thankful Thursday


We sometimes realize we have so much to be thankful for, and other times we completely forget. I have been having a rough week for a number of reasons, and now is probably the best time, when I'm feeling low, to verbalize (so to speak) my blessings.


1. I have a God who forgives me even when I don't deserve it.

2. I have a set of moral rules to live by.

3. My children are a blessing. No, they're not angels, in fact, sometimes quite the opposite, but I am blessed to have a legacy that I can train up in the way they should go.

4. I am blessed to have secure employment and the ability to save money for retirement, which won't happen for about 15 - 20 years. Another blessing is being able to save for college funds.

5. I have a dependable, paid for vehicle that gets me from point A to point Z and all points in between.

6. I am thankful for my family. Lots of stress and headaches, but the love makes it worth it all.

7. I am becoming more conscious of my need to pray throughout the day and to make an extra effort to make a connection with the Lord.


God bless each and every one of you. Here's hoping tomorrow is a more positive day.

Finding the good in a rough week couldn't have been easy, but you wrote some wonderful things. I hope today is a better day for you, my friend.

You're so right. It's important to go & count those blessings, or we get too bogged down with the stressors in our lives.
