Preparing For Christmas | Am I Thankful?

It’s Thanksgiving again. A time to be thankful, to give thanks for everything we have. But am I truly thankful? Or am I just going through the motions?  Thanksgiving falls before Christmas, a time to say thank you; for the gift to come. Christ.

Am I thankful, for the men and woman who fought to protect my freedom, the men, and woman who patrol the area to keep my family and me safe, The men and woman who are a phone call away when someone I love is hurt. For the person who delivers my mail, bags my groceries, makes my food when we eat out. The person who gave me their parking spot? The neighbor who picks up the trash in the neighborhood, the friend who is always there? The job that provides for us? Am I thankful for the little things? Like the beautiful sunrise, a smile, beautiful leaves, time to spend, the laughter of a child, four-legged friends.

Am I truly thankful? Today spend a few moments thanking Him for everything he has given you, from the big things to the little things, like your next breath.
