things that we are most thankful for. It is so easy to focus
on the big things such as a new house, car, job or cell phone.
Those things are always a bit of joy or even a great feeling
What about the small things that matter the most. Electricity,
food, water, clothing, shoes, freedom, transportation, employment
and central air and heat are some things that we overlook being
thankful for because we are used to having or experiencing them
on a daily basis.
Throughout the year I think we complain more than we are thankful.
Our electricity and water bill are too high, we wish we had a
better job, we wish we had another car, the air is too cold, the
heat is too hot, you didn't ask for onions on your burger, those
shoes do not match your clothes, there is no hot water for you
to take a shower.
Some people do not have running water, electricity, a job, a car,
air conditioner or a heater, a variety of shoes and clothes to choose
from, enough food to eat, eyes that see, ears that hear, legs that
walk, arms that bend, and good health. Can you imagine your life
without these things?
Be thankful for what you already have because you never know how
long you will have them.
