How Grateful I Am November 26, 2009

“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.”  ~G.K. Chesterton

It’s turkey day today. I know that today is traditionally a day for thanks. Which would mean it is a day like every other day. Its just that  this day for giving thanks is filled with yummy food and lots of family. In the spirit of tradition, however, I thought that I would contemplate and list the things that I am truly grateful for, this day and every day.

I am thankful for:

Breath in my body and health in my soul,

a happy and fulfilling marriage to man who sees me with eyes wide open,

my beautiful family, old and new,

friends to laugh and cry with,

a job that provides and a home that shelters,

sweet and healthy pets that provide constant companionship and entertainment,

all gifts from a greater and more loving creator than I deserve.

Wishing you and yours the best turkey day ever.
