Facebook has been full of posts from people stating daily things for which they are thankful. The message at church on Sunday was also about being thankful. You would think there is some day coming up soon that revolves around giving thanks. I’m not committed enough to do a daily posting, so you get this instead.
I am thankful for my family. I am thankful for two kids who, while not perfect, are very good kids. I am thankful that the most I have to worry about with them is getting them to do their homework and clean their room. I am thankful for a wife who deals with my pessimistic personality. I am thankful that we both have jobs that allow us to provide food and shelter for our family. Not everyone has that. I am thankful that the few friends I do have are good friends or at least are people who are good at pretending they like me. I am thankful for my brother and sisters and mom who even though we rarely speak would be there for me if I needed them. I am thankful for a good church with a good youth group where my kids can grow in the Christian walk. I am thankful that God has blessed me with all of the above even though I probably don’t deserve it.
I am also thankful that you don’t have to be able to write well to have a blog.
