Giving Thanks

It’s been a weird week, to say the least. As I mentioned last time, I’ve felt a little underwater. Today, we’re going to talk about anything but that. Because tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and I’m going to be thankful. God willing and the creek don’t rise, I’m gonna give thanks.

If I look around my life, I can see a hundred things in every direction that should kick me to my knees with thanks. I don’t take that approach to life often enough.

Instead, I can stare straight at the things that should overwhelm me with their absolute goodness and see just the things that bother me.

It’s a selfish way to be.

If you’re in my life, know that it’s because you’re important to me. You’re not in my life by accident.

For you, I am thankful.

You make this holiday important. You are the reason I can make it through days and weeks and years.

I don’t know what I’d be without you.

Thank you.
