Give Thanks | On Being Grateful


There have been times when I haven’t been grateful. When I have complained about small things that don’t matter one way or another.

As I teach my three little girls what it means to be grateful, I really have internalized the lesson myself.

I have been given much. Much more than I deserve and even expect.

Today I am grateful for my family. Those gathering around the table tonight and those far away, themselves gathering and reflecting.

I am grateful for the sunrise each day I am blessed to witness it.

I am grateful for opportunities I could have never have without my amazing husband.

I am grateful to God for leading us to the right place at the time when we needed to be there.

My heart is so glad. Not just today, but each day that is given to me.

Happy Thanksgiving.
