I’m rarely “ready” for Thanksgiving–it always seems to sneak up on me after my birthday–but this year more than ever I am ready to take some time to focus on being grateful.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
I am grateful that my daughter is healthy, happy,
and enjoys spending time with us.
I am grateful for the time I’ve had with my son since he graduated from college,
and his burgeoning culinary skills.
The lemon pound cake he made from scratch for my birthday was amazing!
I am grateful for a husband who’s always up for a crazy adventure.
I am grateful for the time we had with Tiger Lilly.
I am grateful for sunrise runs, and friends willing to enjoy them with me.
I am grateful for a job I love,
colleagues who are friends, and clients I enjoy working with.
It’s no surprise that today’s Wednesday Word is gratitude–although I guess it could have been gluttony. 😉
