With Thanksgiving just a few days away I have been thinking about all the things I am thankful for. When I was changing out my message board I wanted to put this Quote from Oprah Winfrey on there but I didn’t have enough V’s in my letters to finish it and to be honest I don’t think it would have all fit on my little board anyway!
“Be Thankful for what you have; You’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never ever have enough!” ~ Oprah Winfrey
So I settled with this one, which is pretty much saying the same thing in a more short and sweet way.
I am not going to lie, there are days when I can get pretty down and focus on the things that are not going right in my life and it can really bring me down. Sometimes I don’t even know I am doing it until I get pretty deep into a funk and then I have to stop and re-evaluate and focus on all the good things that are going on in my life instead of the bad and it’s amazing how much better things seem.
Today I am thankful for a lot of things, most of the things that I am thankful for are the real simple things, A warm home, plenty of food to eat, a husband who I love with all my heart and somehow loves me back despite all my shortcomings, My boys and Daughter in law who always bring me joy, I love watching them grow up and become kind, loving and responsible adults. My parents, With my mom’s recent health issues I am made even more aware of how important it is to spend time with them and how lucky I am to have them around still. My brothers and sisters, How lucky I am that I feel like I have a special and different relationship with each and every one of them! I actually am thankful for all of my family, even the ones who I don’t get to see or talk to very much, it is so nice to know I have a huge group of people who love and support me no matter what. And last but not least I am thankful for all my many friends, I am so lucky to have so many good friends who again love me even though I am sometimes kind of crazy, I know that If I needed any of them to they would drop everything and be there for me. I could just go on and on about all that things I am grateful and thankful for, I truly am Blessed! Hope you all have a Great Thanksgiving week and remember to be Grateful for all that you have! 🙂
