Being thankful. A month full of thankful posts.
It all started years ago on FB after I listened to a children’s sermon on appreciating the bits of goodness in our lives. A simple concept that is so very hard to do. Be thankful for all the little stuff…and you will feel full. I decided to give it a try. Waking up in a warm quilty. I am thankful. A good cup of coffee. I am thankful. Fire Island house surviving Sandy. I am thankful. Alarm clocks going off then snoozing in unison each morning. I am thankful. A refrigerator full of food, a warm tubby, a smile from a stranger walking their dog. I am thankful.
It is easy to remember to be thankful for the big things, the near misses missed…the recoveries from illness, the promotions at work. But if take the time to notice all of the little things during the very long days that we keep…they add up and remind us how very lucky we are.
Welcome to my thankful series. Each day, one month, big and small, each important. Feel free to join me. I promise it will create some magic in your life. You will feel happier, you will stand taller…even if you are just thankful for the leaf that just fell from the sky, twirling before your eyes to join its friends on the ground.
I am thankful.
