“Thank you, God, for this good life and forgive us if we do not love it enough.” – Garrison Keillor

Today is Thanksgiving. The Facebook statuses about thankfulness abound. People generally remember to be thankful today, but they often forget the other 364. And when I say they, I have to include myself. Because I often forget to be thankful. And that’s kind of why I picke this quote, because I often do not love my wonderful, wonderful life enough and instead I let complaining, jealousy and envy consume me. I worry about the money and blessings I do not have instead of focusing on the things and the blessings we do have. I am truly and deeply sorry I let these things consume me instead of living and being content in what I do have.

So thank you, God, I deeply thank you for what I do have. An awesome husband and son, loving extended family, a warm, safe house to live in, a pantry that is always full, loving friends, a car to drive, that my husband has a job, that I get to stay home with Dominic, clean water to drink, a God who loves me, an awesome sister, a mom and dad who love and care about me, books and the ability to read, music and the ability to hear, life and the ability to love. For all these things and so much more, I am thankful. Let me always strive to love the life I have right now instead of feeling that it’s not enough.

Happy Thanksgiving.
