On Being Thank-Full

Sometimes, when we get caught up in the daily news, and the hub-bub of daily life, we forget that there’s still so much to be thankful for. News reports of wars, job loss, famine, hunger, violence, personal greed – it all seems too much sometimes.

But today is the day to put it all aside, understanding that it’s all still there, but taking a day to be still and focus on all the good around us. All the things we’re full of thanks for.

Here’s my list:

  • * I’m thankful for my Dad and my Sister, and the memory of my Mom.
  • * I’m thankful for a few absolutely wonderful friends who decorate my life like tinsel on a tree.
  • * I’m thankful for my lovely logger man and the gruff love he shares.
  • * I’m thankful for my health.
  • * I’m thankful for this beautiful place I live.
  • * I’m thankful for knowing Yahweh and his grace.
  • * I’m thankful to be warm and fed and employed when so many are not.
  • * I’m thankful for all the animals, wild and domestic, that grace my every day.
  • * I’m thankful for a cabinet full of tea, and a kitchen full of healthy food.
  • * I’m thankful for my daily gratitude journal that’s provided me with 8 months of daily thankfulness.
  • * I’m thankful for my crazy dog who keeps me laughing and in the present moment.
  • * I’m thankful for this beautiful foggy morning and the filtered light that’s easing me into the day.
  • * I’m thankful for learning so many new things this year.
  • * I’m thankful for my yearning to learn even more.
  • * I’m thankful that I don’t have to travel anywhere for the holidays this year.
  • * I’m thankful for ski season starting this weekend.
  • * I’m thankful for knowing there’s so much more to be thankful for.

I hope you have much to be Thank-Full for this year as well.
