What are you thankful for today? I'm sure you would start with things like home; family; faith; jobs...the list goes on and on. This time of year is a great time to look in your life and just be a "noticer"...Notice your blessings...don't take them for granted. We often get into a rut in our lives and our blessings go unnoticed and in some cases we skip the blessings and start blaming others when our level of "blessings" wane. What a sad way to be. I'd much rather be a noticer than a blamer. Being thankful makes my heart happy...naming those things that have brought and continue to bring happiness in my life helps me realize just how blessed I am.
Granted...we "should" live in a state of thankfulness everyday...but what's wrong with taking the time during this season of the year to say out loud or type on Facebook some things that come to mind? I say nothing is wrong with being thankful EVER. I get a little "testy" when I see folks get on their bandwagon about things like this on the social network. They have a right to post or not post whatever they want, so why would they be upset over the focus on thankfulness during the Thanksgiving Season? I would venture to guess that they do NOT have a happy heart because a thankful heart is a happy heart.
Oh my goodness...did I just get on my bandwagon about other people getting on their bandwagon? Well...just know this...I'm thankful for you, whether that's something you approve of or not! :-)
