Reasons to be thankful...

One of the topics of this past Sunday's sermon was about being thankful. There have been many things that have happened in my life over this past year (some wonderful, some I would rather not recall), but through it all (the good, the bad, and the ugly) it seems as if I can always think of a reason to be thankful.
  • I am thankful for my wonderful husband who can see me through everything even though I can be a major pain in the behind.
  • I am thankful for my sister who has all the sudden become more of a friend and a source of support than a little sister.
  • I am thankful for friends who are there for me even if we aren't able to stay in touch as often as we might like.
  • I am thankful for hard times because they often reveal all the good you have in your life.
  • I am thankful for family (even though it may be messy at times) it always reminds you of who you are and where you came from.
  • I am thankful my husband and I still have jobs and are able to put food on the table and have the things we want and need.
  • Most of all I am thankful for a healthy life and getting the opportunity to live it.

This year has been a hard year for many people, but no matter what I think everyone has a reason to be thankful. I hope everyone takes a chance to reflect on things this Thanksgiving. So many times we take the good things in our lives for granted. It's a shame that most of us do not realize what we have until it's gone.

***Also, on a less serious note (or more serious depending on how you look at it), another point in the sermon was that apparently your body starts dying at 25.......seriously 25?!?!? I have tried to find research on this, but have yet to find anything. I will keep looking but until then, one more bullet point on the reasons I'm thankful list....

  • I am thankful that I am 24 and my body has not yet started to decompose!
