We often times get so caught up in what’s going on in our busy lives that we forget to be thankful for the many blessings we have been given. I try to be thankful all the time, but I too forget and sometimes take things and those I love for granted. What better month to make up for some of those times than November? Thanksgiving is two weeks away. There is much in life to be thankful for, not just on Thanksgiving, but all year long.
2014 is nearly over and so much has happened, much of it wonderful. I got a wonderful job, engaged to my best friend, made new friends, found a church that we want to become members at, got a new car, etc. But there’s so much more than that, so many “little” things that happen on a daily basis that I don’t always take the time to mention or even give much thought to. Help at work on a busy day, nice things done for me for no reason other than they wanted to, my fiance doing kind things to be helpful when I have had a rough day or just because, the cuddles our kitten gives us, hugs from my son, breakfast in bed brought to me by my son, kisses from our puppy, and so many more. There are days that have been and will undoubtedly in the future be very stressful, but even then, there are things to be thankful for. It’s not always easy to remember that fact, but I try often to do just that.
Life is short and many times, those little things often turn out to be way bigger than we originally realized. Here’s to appreciating those “little” things and being thankful for all we have, each and every single day. ❤
