If you are Christian, you are making dinner, or in the car headed to someone’s house, or church, or you are getting ready to relax and watch a game or read a book. Hopefully if you are Jewish or Muslim, or Buddhist, or another culture or religion, you are enjoying the day in your way. The bottom line is enjoy your day! Count your blessings! Praise your God!
I have been in the habit of saying how grateful I am for the blessings I have been given. I got to thinking about it one day and decided that I am grateful. I don’t think God intends to bless me more than a homeless person. There are other things at play; there must be, but I am grateful. I don’t have what Bill Gates has, or Mark Zuckerberg, but I am grateful! I am grateful for my health and the health of my family, I am grateful I am alive and I am grateful that there are people I know who respect and care about me. I am grateful our children pay taxes and love each other.
Thanksgiving is typically the time we give thanks, but we can and should be grateful every day.
Many of you may be having a tough day, and my gratefulness is nauseating. My empathy is yours. It will get better. Life gets better, and then it gets worse, but it does get better again. You know me; you read me; life always gets better.
Hopeful you find your joy today.
