Grateful -- but not mostly for things

Posted on November 25, 2015 in: General News

Come Thanksgiving, it's a habit of speech for us to say, "I'm grateful for so many things."

But that phrase has always troubled me. You see, it's not "things" for which I am most grateful.

Today I found a solution. I want to proclaim from the rooftops that I'm grateful for so many reasons,

And the greatest reasons l'm grateful are the many wonderful people in my life -- family, friends and colleagues. Thank you! Bless you!

And I'm grateful, too, for my own life. Each moment, each breath is a wonderful gift from God. Whatever time I have here on earth, I shouldn't take a single nanosecond of it for granted.

There is no compelling reason in all the universe why I should have come to exist, even for a moment. God's love did that! Pure and simple.

I can't forget that. And neither should anyone else. Happy Thanksgiving!
