When you give thanks on Thanksgiving who do you give thanks to? I was thinking about this the other day as I was driving down the road seeing and hearing all the advertisements for Thanksgiving. I know exactly who I am giving thanks to. I am giving thanks to God. The vast majority of Americans celebrate Thanksgiving but most of them don't think about God in their daily lives. So who are they giving thanks to? Who else could possibly be responsible for all the good in our lives?
It also got me thinking about everything that I have to be thankful for in my life and I thought that this is as good a time as any to make a list. Making lists of the good things in your life is a good thing to do. They are great because it reminds you of what you have and you can look back at them when you are feeling down and not remembering everything great that you have! So here it is my thankful list.
What am I thankful for?
All the extended family
All the things we have
Mr. Random's income
That I can stay home with Little Man
That I was capable of having a child
That I could nurse Little Man for a year
That I have time to spend with family
That I live in America
All the freedom that we have
Our newly painted house
The new floor in the kitchen
Everything that goes with Christmas
Every smile from Little Man
The simple pleasures of life
There is a lot more that I am thankful for. This is just a drop in the bucket of blessings that i have received from God, but that list could go on forever so I am going to stop it here.
But enough about me, what are you thankful for?
