Wednesday Musings: Grateful

I know it’s rather cliche to post about Thanksgiving and giving thanks and being grateful and all that stuff… but I’m going to anyway!

God has really been giving me so many things. He’s helping me to become more grateful. I’m so blessed to have the life that I have. Even the fact that I’m ALIVE is something to be grateful for!

So, in memoriam, I am going to list 100 things that I’m grateful for. Just small, seemingly unimportant things, so don’t expect a profound statement… join me in giving thanks for everyday things. Every once in a while, we need to sit down and list out things we’re thankful for. I was surprised that I could come up with so many- but then, I have a LOT to be thankful for!
