What I Am Thankful For Today!
To be honest there was a time in my life when I was not very grateful. I always wanted more, didn’t appreciate what I had, and felt that I was a victim in this world. But the time came when I may have lost some of the best parts of my life.
There had to be a change in my life if I was going to live happily in this world. Changes were made that affected my whole outlook on life. This change permeated throughout every aspect of who I am and what I do.
Many of those closet to me, my wife and kids, became a high priority. Family vacations, trips, social events were now on an enjoyable level. This is something that I cherish today. Friends and relatives are a joy to be around, fun to talk to and get to know on an all new level.
The work environment is one of being of service to the customer rather rushing to get to the next job. Ironically, business has grown during this time when so many struggle in the construction industry. I am thankful for all those that have come to me for help.
I am thankful for my health too. I am still an active player of sports and recreation that many are not able to do. We are all getting older but I have been blessed with the ability to be active physically.
Today, my need to complain about my life has switched to a feeling of gratitude for all the blessings in my life.
